Ethics and Social Responsibility

University of Northern Iowa

Friday, September 22, 2017

(with special pre-conference sessions to be held Thursday, September 21st)

The Cedar Valley Conference on Ethics aims to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, research, and best practices in facilitating and supporting integrity in a variety of settings.  Each year the conference adopts a theme, and this year the theme is Ethics and Social Responsibility.  We invite submissions for oral, poster, and panel presentations from faculty, staff, students, and community members with research or practice topics from any discipline related to the theme (broadly construed).  This year, we especially encourage presentations on topics pertaining to ethics and social responsibility.
