The Ethics Center administers two awards programs for the Office of the President and Office of the Provost:

Joseph B. and Toby Gittler Prize: Annually honors an individual who has made outstanding and lasting scholarly contributions to racial, ethnic and/or religious relations.

Richman Distinguished Fellowship in Public Life: Recognizes individuals active in public life whose contributions have had a significant impact on improving American society, strengthening democratic institutions, advancing social justice or increasing opportunities for all citizens to realize and share in the benefits of this nation.

Student awards administered by the Ethics Center:

Maurice J. and Fay B. Karpf and Ari Hahn Peace Awards: Given annually to people who wish to work toward coexistence and peaceful ways of addressing and resolving conflicts of many sorts. The awards are meant to enhance peace culture as it evolves in our society and elsewhere in the world.
