Key Message:

“The Ethics GLO equips our graduates with the ability to make considered ethical decisions in their professional and personal lives.  It is not simply about helping students understand and interpret a code of conduct.  It is about helping our students view their decision making process through the lens of different ethical frameworks and understanding their own moral values more deeply.” Bruce Stenlake
