Ethics Resources

The question of students’ ethical behavior came up last year a few times in conversations with faculty, so I wanted to gather some resources in case people wanted to embed some activities/discussions into their classes.Please let me know what you are already doing in this area – I would love to hear from you!

I’ll build this out into a resource webpage, too, so for faculty experts in the area, a request: please share any resources you use now or know about (comment here or shoot me an e-mail scs15@psu.edu), and I’ll add them to the webpage as well as give credit for the contribution! Thanks!! Also, please get in touch, as I’d benefit tremendously from a conversation with you!

Where does this fit into what we do? From the draft of our most recent strategic plan:


UNIVERSITY VALUES

Education is the foundation of an enlightened, productive, and prosperous society.

  • The best education produces knowledgeable, critical, creative, and ethical students.
