VFIC Ethics Program
Distinguished professionals serving as judges and moderators, faculty members, and students from across Virginia support the VFIC’s annual Ethics Bowl testifying to the priority that each of these individuals places on personal ethics in the workplace, classroom, and all aspects of their lives.
The Ethics Bowl program was conceptualized in 1997 by the VFIC Ethics Task Force, co-chaired by Roger Mudd, former History Channel – Journalist and VFIC trustee, and Phillip Stone, President of Bridgewater College (1994-2010). The mission of the task force was to explore opportunities to involve students at the VFIC colleges and universities in the lively debate and consideration of applied ethics—real world dilemmas that affect people’s lives in increasingly complex ways.
While each VFIC institution had woven ethics into the curriculum and culture of their campuses, the intent was to strengthen the focus already in place.
2024 VFIC Ethics Bowl
Hollins University will serve as the host campus for the 2024 VFIC Ethics Bowl on January 28-29, 2024. (The Ethics Bowl Reception and Dinner will be held on Sunday, January 28.)
The topic for the 2024 Ethics Bowl is Ethics and the Environment.
