Debating REAL-WORLD ETHICAL Issues

Undergraduate Program

Monday, Sept. 9, 2013, 7:15-9:45 p.m.
Hutton Honors College Great Room (811 E. Seventh St.)
SIGN-UP REQUIRED: See details below


Come for an evening of friendly debate of provocative ethical questions that come from current, real-world situations that might involve the penalty for cheating in high school honors English, an Alzheimer's case that leads to two deaths, the debate over immigration reform, or the treatment of corporations as "people" who have the right to free speech about political issues.

Will you have answers? Can you persuade others that you are right and your arguments relevant? At this program, HHC students will explore and debate such questions as part of an informal team, guided by current and former members of IU's Ethics Bowl Team, team faculty advisor and sponsor Sandy Shapshay of the philosophy department, assistant coach and former team member Valerie Aquila of the criminal justice department, and coach Cheryl Cottine of the religious studies department and the Poynter Center for the Study of Ethics and American Institutions.
