Environmental Ethics

The University of Miami Ethics Programs have for more than a decade partnered with a variety of academic and civic organizations to host programs and special events related to environmental ethics. Initially in conjunction with the Miami-Dade Commission on Ethics and Public Trust and Florida Atlantic University, the annual “Living on the Edge” conference evolved into a partnership with the School of Communication and the UM Alumni Association, with special support from the Arsht Ethics Initiatives. The program is now on hiatus.
