After a century of publication, Arnoldia, the quarterly magazine of the Arnold Arboretum, has become the definitive forum for conversations about the nature of trees and other woody plants, as well as the landscapes they occupy. Importantly, Arnoldia also reports on the history of the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University and other botanical gardens, and the growth, development, and study of their archival, preserved, and living collections. It is the core publication of the Arnold Arboretum and plays a central role in disseminating knowledge to specialist and lay audiences alike. In 2022 (the Arboretum's sesquicentennial year), Arnoldia will relaunch with a redesigned format that will engage new audiences and expand its impact.

The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University seeks to strengthen teaching and research about pressing ethical issues; to foster sound norms of ethical reasoning and civic discussion; and to share the work of our community in the public interest.
Widespread ethical lapses of leaders in government, business and other professions prompt demands for more and better moral education. More fundamentally, the increasing complexity of public life - the scale and range of problems and the variety of knowledge required to deal with them - make ethical issues more difficult, even for men and women of good moral character. Not only are the ethical issues we face more complex, but the people we face them with are more diverse, increasing the frequency and intensity of our ethical disagreements.
Given these changes in the United States and in societies around the globe, the Center seeks to help meet the growing need for teachers, scholars, and leaders who address questions of moral choice across many of the professions and in public life more generally, and promotes a perspective on ethics informed by both theory and practice. We explore the connection between the problems t...hat professionals confront and the social and political structures in which they act. More generally, we address the ethical issues that all citizens face as they make the choices that profoundly affect the present and future of their societies in our increasingly interdependent world.
