Ethics Debate 09Two teams of UM students including several business majors will represent the University at the regional competition of the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl later this month. The teams came out on top after competing in UM’s sixth annual UM Ethics Debate at the School of Business. Students from schools across campus debated solutions to controversial ethical issues in the competition, which was hosted by the School of Business and organized by the Business Ethics Program and the UM Ethics Society.  

Conceived and funded by Karl and Tere Schulze, and further supported by philanthropist and businesswoman Adrienne Arsht, the purpose of the annual debates is to heighten students’ awareness of the ethical components of real-life situations and to improve their debating and communications skills. This year’s judges included Karl Schulze, who made his sixth trip from California to help judge and be the luncheon speaker.  The Ethics Debate is based on the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl Competition.  Each member of the first place team will receive $300 to donate to a non-profit organization of their choice. 

The two winning teams that will represent UM in the regional competition are:

First Place:

Haley Kornfield, Junior, Political Science
Robert Levine, Junior, Economics, Accounting and Finance
Josh Kornfield, Sophomore, International Relations
Ashley Carnes, Senior, International Relations
Caitlin Giles, Freshman, Political Science (alternate)

Second Place:

Jonathan D’Ambra, Junior, Economics
JaimeWilliams, Junior, International Relations and Psychology
Elana Reman, Sophomore, Broadcast Journalism and Political Science
Marcela Arcos, Freshman, Economics and Latin American Studies
Andrew Hamner, Junior, Political Science
