United States Military Academy: Global Ethics Day (16 Oct 2015)

Last year, on the occasion of its 2014 centennial anniversary, the Carnegie Council (located in NYC) facilitated a multi-year exploration of a ‘global ethic.’  As part of weeklong centennial celebration, the Carnegie Council designated October 16th, as their Global Ethics Day. Academic institutions around the world participated in this celebration on 16 Oct 2014 and have done so once again on 16 Oct 2015 as an educational activity to explore a ‘global ethic.’  In the tradition of a teach-in model, these events were run by each institution (over 60 institutions world-wide participated) while still being part of a worldwide Global Ethics Day.

            The Department of English & Philosophy participated in this year’s Global Ethics Day (as they had done the previous year) by discussing human rights (what are they, why are they important, how can they be secured, etc.) in its PY201 classes.  Discussing human rights is essential because it is foundational to any discussion on international or global ethics and constitutes the core of international justice.  POC is LTC Burkhardt at todd.burkhardt@usma.edu

We hear the cries for action. The Council stands in solidarity with the millions of citizens who are raising their voices demanding change. Carnegie Council's motto is Ethics matter. We believe Black Lives Matter.
