WHAT: Brown Bag Webinar on Ethics in Advising

WHEN: Tuesday April 25th from 2-3:30 pm

WHERE: Memorial Hall Conference Room 116


We have yet another great opportunity to learn and discuss coming up soon. This event will focus on ethics in advising. Here is a description of the session:

Ethics has long been concerned with broad questions of what one ought to do, what characterizes “right” actions, and how do we arrive at these ideals. This discussion will investigate the connections between ethics and advising, reframing these questions as: What should every advisor do? What is advising done well or right? What concepts or ideas might we think are essential to advising, especially an ideal of advising?
