Ethics Education Working Group

In the 2010-11 academic year, the Ethics Education Working Group was tasked with reviewing ethics education (including service learning) both as it contributes to the social and ethical responsibility competency required of all major and specialist POSts, and as it appears in programs more specifically focused on ethics.

The final report of the Working Group highlights the diversity of disciplinary and interdisciplinary programs in FAS that include ethics as a focus. It also includes recommendations for collaborative activities and guidelines on how units can incorporate the social and ethical responsibility competency in their programs.
