Twelfth Annual UM Ethics Bowl at the School of Business Administration to Be Held October 18

Special to UM News

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (October 9, 2015) – The Twelfth Annual University of Miami Ethics Bowl at the School of Business Administration will be held Sunday, October 18, in the fourth-floor classrooms of the Executive Education Building. Starting at 9:15 a.m., morning rounds will feature teams of students analyzing ethical conundrums provided by the Association of Practical and Professional Ethics.

Judges representing the UM community of faculty and alumni will devote their Sunday to the joy of judging the students on the strengths of their arguments. Winning teams will be determined by a final round after lunch. The University community is invited to attend this event and may find the cases here.

Join the business school to learn more about the Business Ethics program and the UM Ethics Society student group, which recruits and peer-teaches the participating teams. Please RSVP to 305-284-4643 if you wish to attend the luncheon as part of the day’s activities.

Conceived and funded by Karl and Tere Schulze, with further support provided in the past by philanthropist and businesswoman Adrienne Arsht, the Ethics Bowl offers students from across the University the opportunity to heighten their awareness of the ethical components of real-life situations and to improve their debating and communications skills. The debate model is drawn from the national Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl contest, which is held every year in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics. The University of Miami will send a team to compete in the regional competition held in St. Petersburg, Florida, in November.

UM took first place at the 2007 National Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl, defeating defending champion West Point in the semifinal round and Westminster in the finals. UM’s ethics teams were also among the top finishers in competitions in 2008 and 2009. Members of our UM Ethics Bowl teams have now graduated from some of the top-tier professional schools in the country, including Yale, the University of Chicago, NYU, and the University of Virginia, to name a few.

UM News


Philip D. Harvey, A. “Parsu” Parasuraman, Shigui Ruan, and Brian Soden.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (August 14, 2015)—Four UM scholars are included in Thomson Reuters’ Highly Cited Researchers 2014, which recognizes scientists whose published works are most cited by fellow researchers. Earning the “mark of exceptional impact” were Philip D. Harvey, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences; A. “Parsu” Parasuraman, chair of the Department of Marketing; Shigui Ruan, professor of mathematics; and Brian Soden, professor of atmospheric sciences.

Harvey, who is also chief of the Division of Psychology at the Miller School of Medicine, specializes in cognitive, severe mental illness, and neuropsychiatric conditions, including traumatic brain injury, dementia, and Parkinson’s disease. Through his work, he has pioneered standards of care.

Parasuraman, who also holds the James W. McLamore Chair in Marketing at the School of Business Administration, has focused his research on defining, measuring, and leveraging service quality; the role of technology in service delivery; and strategies for effectively marketing technology-based products and services.

At the College of Arts and Sciences, Ruan focuses on nonlinear dynamics of differential equations. He uses mathematical models to study biological, epidemiological, and medical problems, such as antibiotic-resistant bacteria and immune response to HIV infections.

Soden, who is also associate dean for professional masters at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, investigates the magnitude of key climate feedback processes, such as water vapor and clouds, and the response of extreme weather events, including hurricanes and extreme precipitation, atmospheric circulation, and wind events, to changes in climate from global warming.

Laura Giuliano

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (June 2, 2015)—Laura Giuliano, an associate professor of economics in the School of Business Administration, has been appointed to the staff of President Barack Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers. Giuliano will serve one term as senior economist for labor and education beginning at the end of August.

The council, which consists of the chair and two senior members, offers the president expert economic advice on the formulation of both domestic and international economic policy. It bases its recommendations and analysis on economic research and empirical evidence, using the best data available to advise the president. The council is supported by up to 10 senior economists—each of whom works on different major areas of the economy.

Giuliano’s duties will include helping to prepare daily and monthly briefings for President Obama and council members and contributing to the annual Economic Report of the President. One regular task will be to help interpret the “jobs report” that is published each month by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“As a senior economist for labor and education, I will provide economic analysis on a wide range of issues involving labor market policy, such as the minimum wage and overtime compensation, as well as issues related to anti-poverty programs, education, and work/family policy,” said Giuliano. “I will also work with other parts of the White House, the Department of Labor and the Department of Education.”

Giuliano has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of California—Berkeley, a master’s in international relations from Yale University, and bachelor’s in economics from the University of Virginia. She has been with the University of Miami  since 2004.
