Washington and Lee University is seeking an outstanding teacher and a recognized scholar to serve as the first Roger Mudd Professor of Ethics and the first Director of the Roger Mudd Center for Ethics.
Roger Mudd, the distinguished journalist and author, graduated from Washington and Lee in 1950. He has recently provided the university with a generous endowment for the creation of a new center that will help to equip our students with the intellectual resources necessary for sound ethical deliberation. The Center will incorporate the activities of a long established program called “Society and the Professions.” This program, in existence since 1974, has sponsored speakers, symposia and institutes integrating the ethical dimensions of a liberal arts curriculum with professional and pre-professional education in business, journalism, law, medicine and environmental studies. The resources provided by Roger Mudd’s gift, together with the funds that support Society and the Professions, will create a dynamic campus organization able to enhance and expand ethical discourse and ethical education across the university.
The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree with credentials appropriate for a tenured appointment at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor in one of the departments or schools at Washington and Lee. Administrative experience, and ideally experience with the organization and implementation of academic programming, will be a plus.
