The Christos and Mary Papoutsy Distinguished Chair in Ethics at Southern New Hampshire University


The Christos and Mary Papoutsy Distinguished Chair in Ethics has been established to address the university's mission to develop within students the wisdom to lead ethical professional and personal lives. Ethics is understood to encompass a wide range of topics including those essential ideals that extend back to our classical forebears.

The Chair promotes this goal through teaching, community lectures, working with faculty and staff to enhance this dimension of their teaching and work, interacting with the external constituencies, and playing a leadership role in campus-wide initiatives related to the topic.

Using the Classics as a foundation and estending through contemporary writers and thinkers, the Chair brings into the curriculum and the community dialogue the cultural, historical, and contextual intellectual traditions in which we have come to understand the exercise of ethical choices.

For more information about the Ethics Chair and its activities and events, visit the Business Arena page of Hellenic Communication Service at or the University website at
