Association for Practical and Professional Ethics

APPE is a comprehensive, international organization advancing scholarship, education and practice in practical and professional ethics. As a multidisciplinary association we bring together academic researchers and teachers, professionals, business and government leaders from all areas including business, engineering, government, journalism, law, medicine, scientific research, social work, and others concerned with the practical application of ethics and values. APPE is dedicated to advancing ethical conduct in the workplace and to supporting the next generation of faculty and professionals. We conduct conferences covering a full-range of topics in applied ethics, award prizes for best papers, and direct a national Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl Competition.
