Stipends for speakers during Ethics Week 2017 are still available. Please let me know if you have planned an event for your class--or for a larger audience!   (2/27/17)

 

 

Ethics Week 2017

March 20-25

 

Please consider organizing some of your class time during Ethics Week around ethical issues as they relate to your subject or discipline. Such emphasis falls naturally within our academic mission: each school has adopted learning goals in ethical awareness or ethical decision making. This year, several members of the faculty plan to focus on environmental ethics and that they hope to organize public events related to that subject. Others should feel free to add to that emphasis from their own perspectives or, of course, to focus on other issues.

We invite members of the faculty to invite distinguished guests to speak that week—to their classes or in an event open to all. Modest stipends for speakers are available. Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested in inviting someone.

The winners of the Abraham J. Briloff Prizes in Ethics for 2016 will be announced during Ethics Week. The closing date for entries from students and faculty is Friday, February 17, 2017. For additional information, see http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/facultyhandbook/BriloffPrizes.htm.
