Welcome to the 2021 College Ethics Symposium

Roland King - 2021 Symposium Chairman 

It is my pleasure to welcome this year’s participants to the 44th 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.

For the first time in our storied history, we will hold a virtual Symposium in October 2021. This event albeit abbreviated this year will nonetheless be valued-added for those attending. 

The objective of the Symposium is – and always has been – to equip students with a base of knowledge and skills to manage contemporary ethical issues in the public workplace as well as their private lives. 

It is my fervent hope and prayer that we can return to an in-person Symposium event in 2022, where students and their faculty advisors convene on beautiful Hilton Head Island for 2½ days of case discussions, sharing and camaraderie.
