Centre for Public Ethics

The Centre for Public Ethics at Martin Luther University College (formerly Waterloo Lutheran Seminary) promotes dialogue, research and education on the choices we make together in support of the public good.

While ethics is about the life choices we make, public ethics is about the life choices we make to serve the common good — whether to serve our neighbours across the street or around the world.

The centre hosts a number of public events each year. To receive email notifications about upcoming events, please send a note to and write PUBLIC ETHICS in the subject line.

Book: Politics and Faith in a Polarised World: A Challenge for Catholics; honoured by the Catholic Media Association 2022 Book Awards
