Ethics Scholars Program Workshop

The Ethics Scholars Program Workshop is a one-day course offered each semester by the Rutland Institute to allow graduate students to explore ethics and ethical decision-making outside of the classroom environment. While originally designed for graduate students participating in the Distinguished Ethics Scholars Program as an opportunity to fulfill their coursework requirement outside of their limited class schedule, the workshop is also available to any graduate student interested in ethics and all undergraduate students in the Distinguished Ethics Scholars Program.
