Ethics Across the Curriculum and Research Stipend Awards to CSULB Faculty

The Ukleja Center for Ethical Leadership at California State University, Long Beach is providing students from academic majors as diverse as art, social work, geography, teacher education, and information systems with essential ethical decision-making tools before entering the workforce. To advance its vision of having an ethics module in every CSULB course, the highest number of Ethics Across the Curriculum stipends were awarded since the program was initiated in 2005. Nineteen $3,000 stipends were granted to faculty for integrating three-hour ethics modules into their courses. This year’s program also extended the Ukleja Center’s reach into all seven colleges, thereby furthering the center’s interdisciplinary aim. In addition, the center awarded two $5,000 faculty stipends for original ethics research. Prior stipend recipients served on the two proposal review and selection committees chaired by Danny Paskin and Gwen Shaffer.
