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.
