Ukleja Center For Ethical Leadership Announces Awards For Ethics Across The CurriculumPublished: May 1, 2012
The Ukleja Center for Ethical Leadership at CSULB is providing students from majors as diverse as journalism, civil engineering and construction engineering management, education and counseling, and nursing with essential ethical decision-making tools before entering the workforce. Through one of its key initiatives, Ethics Across the Curriculum, the center offers $2,000 stipends to faculty members who integrate a three-hour ethics module into their courses. This year’s awards also included a proposal that addresses the problem of plagiarism on the university campus.
The 2011-12 interdisciplinary faculty awardees are Emma Daugherty for “Ethical Challenges, Decision-Making, and Solutions in Public Relations”; Christopher Karadjov for “Ethics Without Borders: Developing and Defending Principled Approaches to Foreign News Reporting”; Jin-Lee Kim for “Ethics in Sustainability in Green Construction”; Jonathan O’Brien for “Professional Dispositions in Ethical Practice for Student Affairs”;
Eileen Watson for “Ethical Decision-Making in Nursing: Reflection on Moral Accountability”; and Tracey Mayfield and Joseph Aubele for “The Scourge of CSULB: The Solution to the Unethical Use of Information”. Recipients received their awards at a campus luncheon attended by faculty, staff, college deans and advisory board members.
Ethics Across the Curriculum is made possible through a grant from Verizon. All CSULB colleges and disciplines are invited to participate and lecturers as well as tenured faculty are encouraged to apply. The application deadline for 2012-13 proposals is Friday, Oct. 26.
The Ukleja Center for Ethical Leadership offers training to enhance the integration of ethics in everything we do. It focuses on a three-pronged approach to applied ethics—university research, education, and community outreach—to equip people with the transformational power of ethical leadership.
