Centre for Ethics and Values (CEV) at Ramanujan College, University of Delhi was established in 2010 with active involvement of the College Principal. CEV was created with an objective of functioning as a Resource Centre for imparting values-based education to students and professionals. The role of CEV was envisaged as creation of awareness in the learners’ community that skills and ethical values are essentially complementary. CEV is engaged with rigorous investigation of ethical issues, enlightened dialogue and the dissemination of knowledge that will lead to informed moral choice. Housed in the Ramanujan College of the University of Delhi, CEV consists of a Patron, a Director, Teacher members, Student leaders and an Advisory Committee drawn from the university and the community.
The centre publishes volumes of ‘International Journal of Applied ethics’that has created virtually an intellectual hub for the intelligentsia and the youth in the areas of ethics, education, social responsibility and transformation. Participants found excellent opportunities for presenting new research, exchanging information, resolving contemporary issues and contemplating future challenges.
