The Scholar-in-Residence program was initially introduced by Dr. Jonathan Cohen in 2001, to strengthen the existing academic partnership between HUC-UC Ethics Center and the University of Cincinnati. The first scholar-in-residence was Dr. Julian Wuerth, a member of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Cincinnati. Because of ongoing relationships with other area research centers, however, it was decided to expand the eligibility for scholar-in-residence beyond the University of Cincinnati. The scholar-in-residence program has proven mutually beneficial for both institutions involved (HUC-UC Ethics Center and the institution at which the scholar teaches), as it centers on an exchange of knowledge and expertise in areas of ethical issues, therefore promoting HUC-UC Ethics Center's mission.Mark Stavsky
