Campus Invited to Dedication of Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence
Case Western Reserve University students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are invited to the formal dedication of the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence at 3:30 p.m. Monday, May 7, at the center on the ground floor of Crawford Hall.
David M. Abshire, president and CEO of the Center for the Study of the Presidency and president of the Richard Lounsbery Foundation of New York, will give the keynote address. Abshire also is vice chair of the board of the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., and served as its chief executive for many years.
Kazuo Inamori will be on campus for the dedication ceremony, which will include a ribbon cutting and open house and remarks by Interim President Gregory L. Eastwood, M.D., in addition to Abshire's address.
The Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence at Case Western Reserve University was established in 2005 through a generous gift from Inamori and the Inamori Foundation of Kyoto, Japan. While most ethics centers in the United States focus primarily on western ethics and ethical practices, this center will be the first to explore ethical issues from a global perspective; nurture international awareness and understanding of our common humanity through the study, teaching and practice of ethics; and pursue excellence in all human endeavors.
RSVP by May 4 to Jane Howarth, 216-368-2133.
