The Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions (CSEP) was established in 1976 to promote research and teaching on practical moral problems in the professions, and throughout this long history Center faculty have continued to publish important works in the areas of professional and applied ethics. You can also search and order publications from 1976 from the present in our publication database.
