Ethic Week 2015: Virtue Ethics in a Virtual World.

The first annual Academy of Collegiate Ethics event was held on October 22, 2015, and was a huge success! We had over 170 people present, most of them students! Student groups (33) of 3-5 students each were assigned an ethical dilemma scenario to which they developed a video that reflected resolution of that dilemma. Students worked very hard on their videos, but we could only award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each undergraduate and graduate division. The winners were:

First Place: Group 24
Second Place: Group 5
Third Place: Group 13

First Place: Group 19
Second Place: Group 21
Third Place: Group 36

We have so many people who contributed their time and efforts to making this such a successful event. We had external and internal judges who spent a considerable amount of time ensuring accurate scoring of the videos. Our ACE Committee worked very hard to make the UC Ballroom a fun place to hold the event and our faculty outside of the Center for Ethics supported the event with soliciting students and scenarios. We are looking forward to ACE 2016!
