Graduate Student Ethics Forum's Monthly Lunches

To promote discussion about the ethical issues that affect us, the Center for the Teaching & Study of Applied Ethics and the GSA will be co-hosting a FREE monthly lunch forum specifically for graduate students from across the university.

That's right: as last year’s monthly graduate student Ethics Lunches were such a hit (and who doesn’t love free food?!?), we’re bringing them back. Suggest topics that we can debate and delight over!

Officially: UNL's Ethics Center and the GSA invite graduate students, professional students, and post-docs to join a monthly conversation about ethics. We play a number of different roles in the University - in addition to being students, we serve as teaching assistants, researchers, future professionals, and current professionals. This unique position creates a relatively unique set of ethical concerns.
