Outreach and Ethics Programs

The Center for Leadership Ethics is devoted to increasing ethical awareness at the K-12, collegiate, and executive levels in society. The Center does so through innovative outreach programs including the High School Ethics Forum, the Collegiate Ethics Case Competition, and the Executive Ethics Symposium.

At the K-12 level, we offer the High School Ethics Forum where members of an undergraduate student ethics board facilitate discussions among the state’s top high school students on matters related to personal and professional ethics. At the collegiate level, we host the Collegiate Ethics Case Competition where top b-schools from around the world send their very best students to compete in an event that challenges the ethical reasoning of students. At the executive level, we feature the Executive Ethics Symposium every other year were scholars and leaders from the business, government, and non-profit sectors discuss leading research on ethics.

High School Ethics Forum
The annual High School Ethics Forum provides high school students with a unique hands-on experience for dealing with personal and professional ethical dilemmas. During the forums, students are introduced to an ethical decision-making model and ethics cases.

Collegiate Ethics Case Competition
At the annual Collegiate Ethics Case Competition, student teams from colleges across North America collaboratively analyze, present, and respond to questions posed by a panel of judges in response to a thought-provoking business ethics case that the students could face in their professional careers.

At the recent Executive Ethics Symposium, a panel of experts shared their insights on the emergence of socially responsible investing, general methods of screening, and investment performance. The experience enriched participants’ understanding of an investment option that has recently grown by more than 22%, to $3.74 trillion in total managed assets.
