St. Andrews makes 33rd appearance at ethics symposium

Every year, representatives of St. Andrews Presbyterian College make the trip to the First Presbyterian Church on Hilton Head Island to attend a weekend symposium on Ethical Decision Making and Moral Values hosted by the Presbyterian Men of the Church.

“We are the only school to send representatives to each of the 33 events,” said Doug Glass, assistant professor of business at St. Andrews. “This distinction has allowed us to expand the offering to areas outside of business and we brought a group of humanities students this year.”

Joining Glass and Assistant Professor of Philosophy Deborah Hawkins representing St. Andrews this year were students Ashleigh Hampf, Bryce Parker, Joanna Hipp, Rob Lawson, Catherine Quigley, Jessica Bitz-Richards, Amber Powell, and Alexis Baker.

“I had the honor of serving as the moderator for the faculty session talking about ethics in the classroom,” said Glass. “It was a highly engaging dialog and brought a lot of different perspectives to the front.”

Other participants included representatives of Eckerd College, Belhaven College, College of the Ozarks, Columbia College, Catawba College, Montreat College, Mary Baldwin College, Queens University of Charlotte, Flagler College, the University of South Carolina at Beaufort, King College, Hampden-Sydney College, Davis & Elkins College and Mount Union College.

While the faculty representatives were discussing classroom ethics, the student representatives were discussing case students in themes such as business, organization and personal ethics; public policy and the common good; bioethics; and personal experience.
