The Centre for Ethics is able to accommodate a limited number of visiting professors each year. Although we do not provide salary replacement or support, the Centre is able to provide an office and computer, library privileges and access to the University’s electronic resources. Visiting professors are expected to contribute to the academic and intellectual life of the Centre, through participation in the various seminars, workshops and reading groups.
