Ethics & the Academy
Anne Newman, research director, McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society
Monday, Sept. 9 – Friday, Sept. 13, 9:30 AM – 1 PM
Who gets admitted to selective universities and why? Who should benefit from university resources? When controversies erupt, what values should guide their resolution? This course addresses enduring ethical questions on campus. By exploring the values (e.g. justice, equality) that underlie campus debates (about free speech, admissions, intellectual property, etc.) participants will gain insight into their role at the university, reflect on the norms that shape their training, and learn to recognize how campus policies reflect inherent institutional values.
Audience: Open to all graduate students in any discipline, as well as postdoctoral fellows, if space allows.
