High School Ethics Forum



High School Ethics Forum

March 4th, 2022

Tucson, AZ

The High School Ethics Forum provides high school students with a unique hands-on experience for dealing with personal and professional ethical dilemmas.

During the forum, students are introduced to an ethical decision making model and ethics cases developed by Dr. Paul Melendez. Undergraduate students from the Eller College of Management, Center for Leadership Ethics board members and people in the community will facilitate discussions. Students will collaboratively analyze and share their ethical solutions for each ethics case. The experience promises to challenge students' ethical reasoning, provide a wonderful networking opportunity and in the end, raise students' awareness of the importance of corporate social responsibility.
