Course description: Communities are challenged by issues of security, poverty and under-development, and environmental sustainability. These issues intersect with those of race, class, and culture in U.S. society, both currently and historically. This course focuses on an understanding of decisions within cultural contexts. Specifically, this course will examine ethics case studies as they apply to issues of workplace and educational diversity, sustainable practices, economic impacts on neighborhoods and nations, and issues of security and identity. The goal of this course is to broaden the understanding of ethics from individual and business-based practices to those affecting communities and nations, and to further skills in research and writing in the area of ethics.
