You may have experienced the pressure to see your college education as a means of obtaining money and power. An excessively success-centered outlook can lead to alienation from your responsibilities to others and from your own higher ideals. At Elmbrook, we believe that the development of your technical expertise must be continually matched by the strengthening of your ethical commitment. Our Ethics Seminars, held once a year, are meant to support you in this aim.
These annual seminars consist of one hour of teaching followed by two hours of discussion. The first section outlines general principles of ethics; the second applies these to cases taken from the real lives of professionals. The seminars are conducted by professors of professional ethics.
