Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl
The UNG Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl was formed in 2014 and provides opportunities for college students to learn to defend their moral assessment on current ethical issues. During the 2014-2015 academic year, the UNG Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl participated in its first year of competition, moving on to compete for a national title after placing at the regional competition held at Clemson University in the fall.
What is the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl?
Hundreds of college students in teams across the United States and Canada compete in 10 Regional Ethics Bowl competitions each fall. The teams argue and defend their moral assessment of some of the most troubling and complex ethical issues facing society today. Questions address a wide array of topics in business and professional ethics, in personal relationships, and in social and political affairs. The competition focuses on selected cases developed by the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics. In the competitions, students demonstrate their ability to:
- understand the facts of the case;
- understand principles involved in the case;
- present an effective argument on how the case should be resolved;
- and, respond effectively to challenges put forth by the opposing teams as well as the panel of expert judges.
Former Ethics Bowl students consider this one of their most important college activities and one that they carry forward into their professional and personal lives.
