The Kelley Ethics Committee under Kelley Student Government was established by the Jeffery and Martha Comment Endowment Fund and the Kelley Undergraduate Business Program to promote ethics and to educate students about the ethical responsibilities of business.
As a group, it is our task to challenge undergraduate students to think critically about current ethical dilemmas and to fundamentally change the mindset of Kelley students in the realm of ethics. We will accomplish this mission through programming, case competitions, and research into the thoughts of Kelley students about ethics in order to better engage students in this complicated topic.
In addition, the Ethics Committee will interact with corporate sponsors to create a dialogue between students and the business world, to better understand the real-time ethical demands placed on young professionals. In the end, the Kelley Ethics Committee's ultimate goal is to be a vehicle to better mold undergraduate students so that they will be able to serve as ethical role models in the professional and academic world upon leaving Kelley.
After an intense deliberation process, the Kelley Student Government is incredibly pleased to announce the winners of the 2013 Kelley Ethics Essay Contest. This year’s prompt focused on Kelley Graduates as vehicles for ethical development in the future work force.
Congratulations to our third place winner, Ryan King, our second place winner Sally Bae, and our grand prize winner of five hundred dollars, Sebastian Wocial. KSG would like to congratulate every student who entered an essay for their tremendous effort and for spending time and energy contemplating one of the often overlooked aspects of business: ethics. This first annual essay contest will be returning next spring semester to Kelley and all students are invited to apply.
