Thanks to the initiative of the University Council (CDU), the University of Fribourg provides its students a bigger offer of interdisciplinary courses in the area of ethics since autumn 2008.

Financed by the University Council (CDU), implemented by the interdisciplinary institute for ethics and human rights (team), the Competence Center for Ethics has the mandate to manage the support requests for the courses in ethics and increase the offers as well as the visibility of ethics at Fribourg University.

The Competence Center for Ethics is overseen by a coordination group.
