The Social Ethics Network is a group of ethics and religion professors who teach in Presbyterian and other seminaries and colleges and who help develop General Assembly social witness policy. Started after a consultation in 1987, SEN usually meets annually at a seminary to foster community among ethicists, to learn about social witness on that campus through interaction with faculty, administrators and students, to consult with one another on current concerns in church and society, and to expand their ethics teaching range and engagement with the church by examining recent and under-preparation Presbyterian (and ecumenical) social witness policy. The group also meets at the Society of Christian Ethics meeting.
This fund will assist in the ongoing development and interpretation of social witness policy by the Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy or its successors. The endowment fund will provide resources for the ACSWP to develop new policies, apply current policies to new situations and produce interpretation resources and studies to promote social witness in the church.
