Ethics Bowl

Dr. Rider and the 2017 Ethics Bowl Team.

The Ethics Bowl competition focuses on selected cases developed by the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics faculty, researchers, and professionals; covering a wide range of disciplines, including but not limited to, business, engineering, journalism, law, medicine, and social work. In the competitions students demonstrate their ability to (1) understand the facts of the case, (2) articulate the ethical principles involved in the case, (3) present an effective argument on how the case should be resolved, and (4) respond effectively to challenges put forth by the opposing team as well as the panel of expert judges.
