Featured Program: High School Ethics Forum
The ability to analyze and challenge ethical reasoning is one of the most valuable skills students can learn. The Center for Leadership Ethics’ annual High School Ethics Forum provides an opportunity to do just that. In a unique, hands-on environment, students are challenged to explore personal and professional ethical dilemmas using a variety of ethical decision making models. Through this process, students learn to develop ethical solutions collaboratively—providing valuable networking opportunities and building a foundation for success as a business professional.
