Sonu Bedi Named Director of Ethics Institute

Associate Professor of Government Sonu Bedi has been named the inaugural Hans ’80 and Kate Morris Director of the Ethics Institute.

Bedi has taken the helm of the Ethics Institute as it seeks to enhance its intellectual presence on campus and across higher education by increasing engagement with faculty and students who are exploring important intellectual questions about emerging ethical issues.

Bedi, who began his role as director on March 15, will lead the expansion of the institute’s academic programming, oversee the ethics minor, and work closely with Executive Director Aine Donovan on programming and academic coordination. Donovan will continue her work at the institute, supporting student programs and outreach to the professional schools.

“I look forward to creating new opportunities for faculty and students to engage in the rich intellectual community of scholars, both here at Dartmouth and elsewhere, working on questions of ethics in society,” says Bedi, who will continue to teach while directing the institute.

“We are thrilled to have Professor Bedi bring his vision and expertise to the Ethics Institute,” says Vice Provost for Academic Initiatives Denise Anthony, who oversaw an external review of the Ethics Institute in 2016. Read more in this Dartmouth News article.
