The Schreyer Honors College Ethics Seminars for Faculty

Classroom image

The Rock Ethics Institute has developed Ethics Seminars for faculty in response to the Association of American Colleges and Universities’ recent call for education that fosters “intellectual honesty, responsibility for society’s moral health and social justice, active participation as a citizen of a diverse democracy, discernment of the ethical consequences of decisions and actions, and deep understanding of one’s self and respect for the complex identities of others, their histories, and their cultures.”[1] Rock Ethics Institute Ethics Seminars provide faculty from across the disciplines with the resources needed to integrate ethics-related topics into their courses.

The mission of the Schreyer Honors College is congruent with that of the Rock Ethics Institute: to advance academic excellence with integrity and to encourage students to be engaged in civic leadership. To further this mission, the Schreyer Honors College is partnering with the Rock Ethics Institute and the College of the Liberal Arts to offer faculty the opportunity to enhance their current or upcoming honors classes by incorporating into them elements related to ethics and ethical leadership.
