The first annual McNerney-Hanson Ethics Bowl will be held on Saturday, April 20, from 1-4 p.m., in Shiley Hall room 301. The event is sponsored by College of Arts and Sciences Dean, Michael F. Andrews, who also serves as the McNerney-Hanson Endowed Chair in Ethics, with additional support from the Dundon-Berchtold Ethics Grant. The event is free and open to the public.
Two UP teams will take part: one team of graduate students from the Dr. Robert B. Pamplin, Jr. School of Business Administration, and a second team of undergraduate students from the Speech and Debate Union.
Unlike other ethics bowl competitions, the McNerney-Hanson Ethics Bowl will reflect a particular University of Portland emphasis on ethical formation and the study and articulation of ethical theory and practice. The purpose is to expose graduate and undergraduate students to a philosophical style of reflective, ethical thinking that allows them to apply an understanding of ethics to a particular situation or issue.
