SHU Ethics Bowl Team
The Philosophy Department is the home of the SHU Ethics Bowl Team. In Ethics Bowl, teams of undergraduates 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. Teams are judged on how well they a) acknowledge the complexities of each case, b) take into account the arguments and points made by the opposing team, and c) maintain a civil atmosphere that is conducive to creative ethical thinking and constructive discourse.
