Our world increasingly demands attention to pressing issues of moral, legal, and social concern. We continue to struggle with longstanding problems like discrimination and income inequality, and we face new and urgent challenges involving such crucial areas of life as sustainable resources, revolutionary technology, and radical biological possibilities. The Center for Ethics, Law, and Society is Sonoma State University's new hub for confronting these complex problems.
