CHANGE Student Organization

CHANGE logo 

The Rutland Institute for Ethics’ student ethics committee, Creating Habits and Norms Guiding Ethical Decisions (CHANGE), was established at Clemson University during the Spring 2019 semester. CHANGE serves to create ethical programming at both the university-wide and college-specific levels by hosting speakers, events, and activities that focus on exposing students to real-life applications of ethical decision-making and ethical leadership. In addition to programming initiatives, CHANGE assists in hosting Clemson University’s Ina B. Durham High School Ethics Case Competition in the spring; publishes the Ethics Editorial newsletter that highlights various aspects of the Rutland Institute for Ethics; serves as the student voice of the Institute; and assists in promoting Annual Ethics Day and the TIDE Conference. It is the goal of CHANGE to consist of at least two undergraduate representatives and one graduate representative from each of the eight academic colleges at Clemson University.  


CHANGE meets on Thursdays

5:00 –6:00 pm in Hardin Hall


Please reach out to the Staff Advisor of CHANGE, Emily-Elizabeth Castelloe (, if you would like more information or have any questions.
