“From its inception as a military institution, Clemson has been recognized widely for the strong sense of character developed in its graduates. The Rutland Ethics Across the Campus program complements and formalizes this long-standing Clemson commitment.”
~James F. Barker, FAIA - 14th President, Clemson University
Welcome to The Rutland Institute for Ethics at Clemson University. Our programs and activities are intended to benefit Clemson and its surrounding community. Campus activities focus
on students, faculty and staff. Community programs are designed to reach the entire community, with special attention directed to the business, education and professional sectors. The
principal academic partner of the Rutland Institute is the Clemson University Department of Philosophy & Religion.
The Rutland Institute for Ethics helps Clemson students to develop ethical habits that lead to future success.
Today, Clemson is redefining the term “top-tier research university” by combining the best of two models: the scientific and technological horsepower of a major research university
and the highly engaged academic and social environment of a small college.
In May Dr. Wueste is spending a day in Columbia and one in Charleston presenting “Professional Ethics in Design and Building” a continuing education seminar.
In April, Dr. Wueste will be on the road again to North Dakota State University for a Spring 2014 workshop and talk. Sponsored in part by the Northern Plains Ethics Institute, the university and the North Dakota Humanities Council, the workshop will be on “Ethics Across the Curriculum to Prepare Students for the Real World.” The talk will be on “Higher Education Isn’t Burger King: exploring the limitations of the “customer-service” model in higher education.”
