Welcome to the Institute for Ethical Leadership and Social Responsibility

Mission : To promote the study and teaching of ethics, leadership, and social responsibility with a view to fostering moral awareness and ethical engagement throughout the Rosemont community and beyond.

Higher education in the United States, particularly in the liberal arts and the Catholic intellectual tradition, has long emphasized the preparation of an educated citizenry for active civic, economic, and cultural participation by addressing important moral and social issues. This emphasis continues to be of vital importance, as the complexities of today’s society increasingly demand that central questions concerning ethical values and their relevance to democratic society and human flourishing be addressed. Likewise, ongoing moral failures in leadership – whether in politics, business, sports, education, and other societal institutions – require a thoughtful consideration of the moral foundation and social responsibilities of effective and inspiring leadership.

Our institute was launched with a view to raising the visibility of moral issues and providing opportunities for student leadership and community engagement throughout our academic programs and extra-curricular activities. We are committed to helping students develop the knowledge and skills necessary for becoming reflective and active citizens who recognize the importance of contributing to the broader values and needs of society.
