Form a team and compete in the second annual Tufts Ethics Bowl!

Is it right to sell lottery tickets to raise money for education if the lottery fuels gambling addiction? Should the police be allowed to use drones to monitor private citizens' activities if there's a chance a crime might be stopped? Should the public pay for the lung cancer treatment of smokers? Is it OK for employers to request access to the social media profiles of job applicants?

The Ethics Bowl is a competition between small teams to come up with best answers to ethically challenging questions. Teams are judged by the rigor of their ethical reasoning, the depth of their research, and their ability to respond to questions and challenges.

Tufts will be hosting its second annual Ethics Bowl this coming fall: November 8, 2014. The winners will go on to compete at the regional and national levels.

We are looking for teams of 3-5 students from departments and programs across the university. Graduate students from the top-ranked Tufts M.A. philosophy program will serve as coaches. Coaching begins in early September.

The Ethics Bowl is a great way for you to sharpen your critical thinking, research, and public speaking skills while engaging timely, ethically charged issues. Explore the gray! Join a team!
