The University has been continuing to emphasize and link our considerable strengths in practical or applied ethics across the three campuses through an Ethics Initiative, and the Complex Moral Problems stemmed from this desire to also support collaborative research on applied ethics across the University. To qualify for the award the project was concern a moral problem; these moral problems must be complex in a way that calls for, or would benefit from, interdisciplinary or collaborative treatment; the project must aim to engage in a useful way with real-world, morally significant problems actually faced by people.

The project will be testing moral reasoning in exceptionally altruistic people.
Well-done, Professor Huebner!
