Student Leadership Training

The student leadership training with Community Mentors from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences consists of a detailed applied ethics discussion activity. The exercise is designed to help people with different opinions strategize together, listen to each other, and work together towards solutions.

Applied Ethics Dimension

Students learn about the basic moral foundations all people have and how they affect every day situations  and decisions. The overall goal is to have people with different beliefs about a specific issue learn about one another, why they feel the way they do, and come up with a policy or recommendation on how to move forward.
