The Center for Ethics Education (CEE) was set up in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in July 2017 to promote moral, ethical and spiritual values with the intent to create an enabling environment to build a fair and just society. The Center was co-founded by Dhaka Ahsania Mission (DAM) and the North American Bangladeshi Islamic Community (NABIC), USA, in collaboration with the Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology (AUST).
To build a society that will adhere to and practice moral, ethical and spiritual values of life.
To create a new generation committed to take challenges in reversing the social, moral and ethical degradations. The mission would be accomplished through briefings, lectures, seminars, symposia, research, training and advocacy.
Rationale of the Center
Dhaka Ahsania Mission was set up by Khan Bahadur Ahsanullah (R) with the motto of Divine and Humanitarian Service which aims to develop the social and spiritual life of the entire human community. It also seeks to cultivate brotherhood and infuse divine love in the hearts of humankind. Enabling one to recognize and realize the relationship between the Creator and its Creation, the Dhaka Ahsania Mission seeks to render all possible help to the suffering humanity. Against this holistic backdrop, the setting up of such a Center is expected to create an opportunity for the Mission to materialize the dream of its Founder. DAM Strategy Plan 2015-2025 has been drawn outlining the strategies for syngery of the core values of the Mission – honesty, morality, humanity, spirituality, humility, equality and caring for nature. Moral and ethical education, which are the core values of NABIC, is expected to play the pivotal role in achieving the goals of the Center.
Scope of Works
Now we are living in a global village. Each day we are receiving many new ideas and facing many challenges about human values, ethics, morality and dignity. The ethical crisis is not in Bangladesh only. The whole world is also facing this problem. So we are identifying several areas on ethical issues and working on those. These are – ethics on education, ethics on healthcare, ethics on daily life law, ethics on environment and diversity, ethics on religion, ethics on business, ethics on ICT, ethics and cultural diversities and others. Now, we are going to introduce a training course on the basis of those identified areas for our future generation to build better Bangladesh as well as the globe.
What We Do
- Yearlong ethical course for secondary school students. Total sessions are 30 and each session duration is 1.5 hours.
- Yearlong ethical course for higher secondary school students. Total sessions are 30 and each session duration is 1.5 hours.
- Yearlong ethical course for graduate level students. Total sessions are 30 and each session duration is 1.5 hours.
- Short ethical course for young professional such as doctors, bankers, etc.
A group of academically brilliant and professionally qualified teachers/instructors are involved in preparing course materials and curricula, keeping in mind the objectives of the Center. Participants will be given both theoretical and practical knowledge of the impact of ethical education in life.
On completion of the first phase with success, efforts will be made to explore the possibility to incorporate Ethics Education course into the curricular of College/University discipline as a subject to be taught with credits. In that case, we may think of aligning it with the Department of Law/Aust which is being contemplated in the near future.
