2017 Conference on Ethics and Social Responsibility

3rd Biennial Cedar Valley Conference on Ethics

Ethics and Social Responsibility

University of Northern Iowa, Maucker Union, Friday, September 22, 2017, with special pre-conference sessions held Thursday, September 21st

The Cedar Valley Conference on Ethics provided 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 was Ethics and Social Responsibility.  We invited 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 encouraged presentations on topics specifically pertaining to ethics and social responsibility.
