Explore America’s ethical dilemmas

In an age of misinformation, manipulation of facts, and information overload, ethics in the public eye are under intense scrutiny. At the Poynter Center for the Study of Ethics and American Institutions, we’re dedicated to shining light on the intersections among ethics, the media, and public institutions.

Our interdisciplinary approach to research, teaching, and critical inquiry creates an all-encompassing environment for faculty, students, and the community to explore today’s burning issues—and tomorrow’s. We bring prominent public intellectuals to the IU Bloomington campus to share their thoughts and foster intellectual conversation.

Won’t you join us?

There can be no false equivalence in facts. They are stubborn, they are unyielding, and they are precious.

Roger Cohen, inaugural Poynter Chair
