Innovation in Ethics Education grant program seeks proposals
The Freeman School is currently accepting proposals for the inaugural Millie and Allan Bradley Innovation in Ethics Education Grants.
Grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to Tulane University faculty to support the development of innovative educational materials focused on ethics in business and society. These intellectual contributions might include case studies, decision- or judgement-making tools or research reports. Potential topics include business' role in society, corporate social responsibility, social innovation and entrepreneurship, leadership character, corporate culture, ethics programs, and ethical decision-making dilemmas.
Proposals that reflect two emerging trends in higher education — collaboration among faculty across disciplines and “flipped classrooms” — will receive special consideration. Interdisciplinary perspectives on ethical issues increase students’ levels of ethical wisdom and enhance their overall understanding of this important broad-based educational foundation. Flipped classrooms refers to interactive, student-centered designs that use in-class time for students to engage in problem-solving and apply course content to real-world problems. Regardless of the focus or format, all submissions should have an ethical component as the centerpiece.
Funding for the program is provided by Millie P. Bradley (NC '73, MBA '75), former controller and manager of information systems with Exxon Mobil Corp., and Allan Bradley Jr. (MBA '75), president and CEO of Questar Pipeline Co.
