Welcome To The Center For Ethics In Public Life

Welcome to the Center for Ethics in Public Life, an initiative established at the University of Missouri – St. Louis with the aim of promoting integrity in public service and insuring a democratic process that protects public values of all kinds. The Center is one of only a very few university-based programs across the country dedicated to the particularly challenging ethical issues that confront public officials at the federal, state and local levels. Through its planned program of instruction, training and research, the Center seeks to strengthen public confidence and trust in government and to support appointed and elected officials in pursuing careers that are distinguished by honesty and integrity.
