BARUCH COMMUNITY CONSIDERS ETHICS ACROSS THE BOARD
BARUCH COLLEGE, NEW YORK, NY (2/25/03)—In response to recent concerns over diminishing ethics standards in the business world, nine members of the Baruch College faculty are presenting a semester-long series of discussions and lectures collectively entitled, “Ethics Across and Beyond the Curriculum”. A complete schedule of the remaining events, along with their times and locations, appears at the bottom of this article.
Presenters so far have included Professor Douglas Carmichael of the Accountancy department, and Professor Douglas Lackey of the Department of Philosophy. Professor Gail Levin of the Department of Fine and Performing Arts will present this week’s lecture, entitled “Ethics and Collecting Art”.
The seminar series is intended to give faculty members from a variety of disciplines an opportunity to discuss methods of integrating ethics education into the classroom. Baruch College has long recognized the importance of an ethical foundation in the education of all students, and faculty from the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Public Affairs, and the Zicklin School of Business are expected to participate in the series. The Zicklin School of Business in particular has taken a leadership role by requiring an ethics component in all of its new courses. A discussion of ethics is also a part of several required courses at the College.
The Spring 2003 seminar series is generously supported by the Charles Dreifus Ethics-Across-the-Curriculum Initiative and the Joseph Drown Foundation. A calendar of the series is available online at http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/facultyhandbook/ethics_seminar.htm.
