The Ethics Match was established to provide a forum to discuss applied business ethics and to raise awareness of the value of independent higher education and of the discussion and reasoned argument that are the foundation of liberal arts education.

“Diversity changes are partially influencing our moral compass, which often contributes to business dilemmas,” said Dr. Torti. “Schreiner University Ethics Team members debated such business dilemmas at the Ethics Match on October 30-31.”
