I recently joined the Faculty Advisory Committee of the SMU Cary M. Maguire Center for Ethics and Public Responsibility, and was thrilled to receive a gorgeous commemorative coin for the 20th anniversary of the center (pictured left), on my very first meeting with the committee to boot. I also have an active research grant from the SMU Maguire Center, about which I hope to write more soon.
While ethical issues have become prevalent today, they were not nearly as important in 1997, and it is exciting to be part of an organization that saw the writing on the wall before anyone else did. We had an amazing conservation about topics for the next SMU Maguire conference, all related to ethics (obviously), and I can't wait to see which ones are selected to be part of the conference in a few months. The SMU Maguire Center is quite a unique place to belong to.
Cary M. Maguire is a SMU trustee emeritus. You can find out more about him here.
