41th Annual College Ethics Symposium


Dear Student/Faculty Member: 

We invite you to join us on beautiful Hilton Head Island, SC for our 41th annual College Ethics Symposium. This year’s event will be held on Thursday October 18/(afternoon) through Saturday (noon) October 20, 2018.

We limit the number of students to 100 and utilize a first registered, first accepted process. We encourage four senior students and a faculty member from each institution.  All colleges and universities are eligible to attend.

The mission of the Ethics Symposium Committee is “To foster ethical decision making by utilizing Christian as well as other faith’s moral values.” We are respectful of the principals and values of other faiths and take care to encourage everyone to express their opinions.

It’s not all work and no play.  The first thing on the agenda is a time for the students and faculty to meet each other via a beach party held on Thursday afternoon. You’ll stay in guest homes on the Island and on Thursday evening you’ll be a part of lively dinner/ discussion with not only your host but other students.

Students from the various Colleges/Universities are broken into small groups, where they have an opportunity to discuss current ethical issues facing each of us today and especially students entering the workplace for the first time. Experienced facilitators help in that process.  Faculty members have their own programs.

Friday has a wide variety of activities. We're working now on a proces that may tell you more about yourself than you have felt before. This can be an excercise that can last a lifetime.  Friday afternoon will be spent getting to better know our Hilton Head beauty via a boat ride on Calibogue Sound where many dolphins call home.

Friday evening we invite your hosts to join us for dinner. This is always followed by a program that we hope you can't experience at other places. Last year former  Speaker of the House of Representative, John Boehner was our honored guest. Press was not allowed and students had their turn at questioning a seasoned politician. Tough questions!!!  Look under the Keynote Speaker section on this site and you'll see our speaker we have for you this year. It should be VERY interesting. 

Saturday morning you’re wrapping up with your small groups and then headed home.

The Ethics Symposium Committee takes care of all expenses once you have arrived on the Island. For registration information contact Steve Miller 

Expanded information about this opportunity is located within this web site.

We look forward to your participation in this long standing tradition.

Jim Webb, Chairman
