The Ethics of Student Life

Friday, Jul. 15, 2011

The Ethics Center's Big Q project is featured today In an article on Inside Higher Education.

As Center Executive Director Kirk O. Hanson explains, “In any role we play in life, there are a set of unavoidable ethical dilemmas that come with that role, that come with the territory. Practical ethics is about knowing those are coming so they don’t blindside you, and preparing yourself to handle them. We can make it possible for freshmen to live their lives with greater integrity, or greater consistency with their own values, if they know what kind of dilemmas they’re going to face.”
