Navigating Ethical Dilemmas in Your Workplace

Thursday, September 22, noon to 1:00 pm

116 BBH Building

Penn State is committed to the values of integrity, respect, responsibility, discovery, excellence, and community. One of the ways we express these values at the Smeal College of Business is through our Honor Code. We involve our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and recruiters in our effort to promote a culture of integrity and ethical behavior. In this interactive session, we will go beyond the ethical dilemmas that your students experience, and navigate a sample of ethical dilemmas familiar to advisers. From managing difficult conversations with your students to dealing with pressures from your students’ parents, you undoubtedly experience ethical dilemmas on a weekly (perhaps, daily!) basis. You will also learn a handful of tactics that you can implement in your workplace to promote the Penn State values, namely integrity. In preparation for this session, please send your topic ideas to Jennifer Eury, by Thursday, Sept. 15; she will consider your ethical dilemmas in the development of the scenarios to be discussed.

Speaker: Jennifer Eury, Honor and Integrity Director, Smeal College of Business

They're Here: the New Drop Policies

Wednesday, October 12, noon to 1:00 pm

116 BBH Building

The University Faculty Senate approved changes to the University Academic Progress policies, to take effect the Fall 2016 semester. An open forum for discussion of these changes will be the focus for the Noon Seminar on October 12, 2016 at noon in 116 BBH Building. Particular attention will be given to policies 54-20, Academic Warning, and 54-40, Academic Suspension. A few examples of how these policies might be implemented in a couple of Colleges will be shared, but the main focus of the seminar will be brainstorming ideas and guided discussion of possible initiatives for undergraduate students who are struggling academically.
