ETHICS CENTER TEAM WINS ETHICS BOWL REGIONAL COMPETITIONThe University of Nebraska-Lincoln sent two teams to compete in the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl Rocky Mountain Regional Competition at the University of Colorado in Boulder on November 2, 2013. In competition, teams present their resolution to an ethical dilemma before a panel of judges and an opposing team. One of UNL's teams went undefeated through all rounds and won the regional competition. This secures a slot for UNL at the national competition, which will be held February 27 through March 2, 2014 in Jacksonville, Florida.
The winning team consisted of Oliver Tonkin (political science), Kate Miller (philosophy), Tony Moran (philosophy), Sarah O'Neill (global studies), and Maddie Bien (anthropology). The team was organized and coached by Clare LaFrance, a graduate student in the philosophy department at UNL and the Ethics Center Assistant Director for Undergraduate Programs. The Assistant Director for Graduate Programs is Adam Thompson. The team was also coached by Allison Fritz, a graduate student in the philosophy department at UNL. Aaron Bronfman is the Faculty Adviser in the philosophy department.
