The Center works to allay human suffering and enhance human dignity by identifying and confronting the underlying spiritual, social, and political moral issues that rob individuals of peace and that produce human suffering and indignity.

The Center's work encompasses bioethical research and education across a wide spectrum of contemporary moral issues, ethical and leadership training for individuals, groups, educational institutions, and businesses, as well as specific humanitarian projects locally, nationally, and internationally.

The Center convenes leaders and students to address complex human moral needs around the world in three distinct but related ways:

•  Learning Initiatives (Exploring the Word of Need)

•  Teaching Initiatives (Equipping for Change)

•  Serving Initiatives (Engaging the Voiceless)
