Welcome to the 2022 College Ethics Symposium

Roland King - Symposium Chairman 

It is my pleasure to welcome this year’s participants to the 45th College Ethics Symposium. Dare I say when the charter members created the concept that resulted in this Symposium back in 1978, they never envisioned it as anything, but a direct, in-person event held on Hilton Head Island. What a difference 4 decades makes.

The objective of the Symposium is – and always has been – to equip college senior students with knowledge and skills to navigate through contemporary ethical issues both in the workplace as well as their private lives. We use case studies as our teaching tools to convey ethical an moral principles.

For the first time in our storied history, we held  a virtual Symposiums in October 2020 and 2021 in deference to the pandemic. Those virtual events – albeit abbreviated compared to our in-person events  – were nonetheless thought to be valued-added for all those participating. 

We plan to return to an in-person Symposium event in October 2022, where students and their faculty advisors will convene on beautiful Hilton Head Island for 2½ days of case discussions, sharing and camaraderie.  5
