Help Send the OSU Ethics Club to the Ethics Bowl!
WHERE WE'RE GOING...
In November of 2017, the OSU Ethics Club plans on sending two teams and their faculty adviser to compete in the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl (IEB) regional competition in San Antonio, TX. There they will compete against approximately two dozen other teams in order to qualify for the National Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl in January.
Prior to our trip to the Texas regionals, the OSU Ethics Club will also be competing in the Oklahoma State Ethics Bowl at Oklahoma Christian University in Edmond in late October. There we will face off against over ten intercollegiate teams from all over the state of Oklahoma.
Here's more info on the Ethics Bowl from our Ethics Club President:
HOW YOUR DONATION HELPS...
Competing in both the state and regional Ethics Bowl competitions is associated with a number of fees. Registration fees aside, we still need to rent a van and pay for gas for both competitions, and at regionals we also need to fund two night's accommodations for all, as well as meals for our three days of travel and competition. Your donation helps to ensure that we travel and stay safely as we represent OSU!

MORE ABOUT THE ETHICS BOWL
The IEB gives students a chance to enter an academic competition that combines excitement and fun with valuable experience in the areas of practical and professional ethics. Hundreds of students and teams across the United States and Canada compete in 11 regional competitions each fall. Teams argue and defend their moral assessment of some of the most troubling and complex ethical issues facing society today. Questions address a wide array of topics in business and professional ethics, in personal relationships, and in social and political affairs.
The competition focuses on selected cases developed by the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics (APPE) covering a wide range of disciplines, including — but not limited to — business, science, technology, engineering, journalism, law, medicine, and social work. In the competitions students work as a team in order to demonstrate their ability to (1) understand the facts of the case, (2) articulate the ethical principles involved in the case, (3) present an effective argument on how the case should be resolved, and (4) respond effectively to challenges put forth by the opposing team as well as the panel of expert judges.
