Join the men in our community and walk a mile in her shoes! Help us raise money and awareness to end violence at Utah State. Location: USU TSC, Patio. Open To: Everyone! Admission Info: Free!

Shades of Grey - Engineering Ethics
Wednesday, Apr 13 - 12:30PM to 1:30PM Keynote Speaker for IEEE SPAC **Free Pizza** Engineers and other technical professionals provide their greatest contribution to society by solving problems and making decisions in the application of technology. However, solutions to ethical situations often are not black or white issues. Typically, there are shades of gray with no single right or wrong answer. In making ethical decisions, engineers need to be sensitive to how their decisions will impact others. Although ethical behavior is based on personal values, there are guidelines to help professional engineers make ethical decisions. This presentation addresses ethics from a practical viewpoint and includes audience group exercises. It is designed to build an awareness of ethical dilemmas and to provide an engineering process for their solution. Location: Engineering Building - Room:201. Open To: Everyone!
