Founded in February 1984 by decisions of the Faculty of Arts, the Senate and the University Court, the Centre is in its fourth decade of operation. It is the oldest university centre or institute for philosophy, ethics and policy in the United Kingdom and has served as a model for similar institutes elsewhere in the UK and internationally.

CEPPA maintains a programme of academic visits, fellowships, lectures, seminars and conferences, with occasional ongoing research projects. It also hosts a major publication series, St Andrews Studies in Philosophy and Public Affairs, and provides a forum for public discussion both within and outwith the University.
