Be a Judge at the 2015 IIT Tech Global Leaders Ethics Bowl!

The Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions invites faculty, staff and interested graduate students to participate as a judge or moderator in the Illinois Tech Global Leaders Ethics Bowl on Friday, July 10, 2015 from 2-5 p.m. on the Illinois Institute of Technology Main Campus.
The Illinois Tech Global Leaders Program brings 100 high-achieving, Chicago-area high school students together for a four-week, thematic program that introduces them to diverse science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) career fields and involves the students in searching for solutions to pressing world problems with significant technological and ethical aspects.
The Ethics Bowl competition will challenge the students to take what they have learned during the first weeks of the program a step further, asking them to work as a group to analyze and discuss a series of ethics cases concerning world problems such as issues surrounding emerging technologies, the environment, disease prevention, crime, and issues related to the current economy and job creation.
There will be a 45-minute training session for judges and moderators at 2 p.m., after which there will be one round of ethics bowl. The deadline to volunteer is Tuesday, June 30, 2015.
If you have questions or are interested in being a part of the competition, email Kelly Laas at laas@iit.edu.
