Research Centers

The Department of Humanities is home to the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions as well as the Digital Communication Research and Instruction Lab. It also houses the Writing Center, a free resource to all undergraduate students seeking writing tutoring services.

Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions

The Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions promotes research and teaching on practical moral problems in the professions. The first interdisciplinary center for ethics to focus on the professions, CSEP continues to be one of the nation’s leading centers for practical and professional ethics.

Digital Communication Research and Instruction Lab

The Digital Communication Research and Instruction Lab opened as a collaborative effort between Paul V. Galvin Library and the graduate program in the Department of Humanities. The lab supports library workshops as well as faculty and graduate student research and teaching. For more information, contact Karl Stolley.

Humanities and Technology Lab

The HaT Lab provides equipment and space for digital humanities research and media projects. Lab faculty collaborate with graduate and undergraduate students, and provide mentoring on student projects. Equipment is also available for instructional use across the department.

“Illinois Tech with its programs in science, technology, and engineering is an ideal home for the Ethics Center. It's an ideal surrounding to reflect with students and faculty on the ethical and social implications of their fields, and to collaborate in interdisciplinary projects. People are interested as they see that science and technology are not being taught and developed in a vacuum.”

—Elisabeth Hildt, Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions
