Ethics Bowl

Each year, EthIC fields a team to participate in the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl. As the name suggests, Ethics Bowl is a competition in which teams from various colleges debate concrete ethical questions before neutral judges. Students participating in Ethics Bowl research and formulate ethical stances on a dozen  questions over the course of fall term and then travel to compete in one of Ethics Bowl’s regional tournaments
