Anyone interested in the topic of ethics, particularly ethics instruction in higher education, is invited to the Daniels Fund Ethics Seminar hosted by New Mexico State University’s College of Business. The event will take place from 9-11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 26, in Guthrie Hall Room 100.
While the interactive seminar on applied ethics will be geared toward NMSU faculty and staff members, the event is open to the public and free to attend. It will focus on teaching strategies and bringing a more applied perspective to ethics education.
The event will feature O.C. and Linda Ferrell, both business professors at the University of New Mexico and highly respected scholars in business education and ethics. They will share their knowledge and experience with broad-based programs in ethics education as well as best practices for bringing greater relevance to ethics in the lives of students, faculty, practitioners and community leaders.
“Ethics has always been important in business as well as in society in general,” said College of Business Dean Garrey Carruthers. “The insight provided during this seminar will be valuable and this event fits perfectly with our goal of developing new and innovative ways to teach ethics.”
The seminar is part of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative, whose goal is to strengthen principle-based ethics education and to foster a high standard of ethics in young people. Earlier this year, the NMSU College of Business announced it would receive $1.25 million over the next five years from the Daniels Fund to develop a principle-based ethics program.
