Ethics Clubs and Organizations
Participants of the 2008 Ethics Debate at the School of Business
The University of Miami Ethics Society has a decade-long track record in stimulating discussion and debate into the ethical implications of our academic, professional and social environments.
The organization endeavors to spread understanding of ethics and critical thinking throughout society – in law, medicine, politics, business, information technology and other fields. It delves into these issues through special programs and presentations, panel discussions and collaborations with other groups.
The Ethics Debate unit of the Ethics Society allows students to augment their studies of the discipline through discussion and argument in a competitive setting. In addition to training members for two University-wide competitions during the year, Ethics Debate also fields teams for the Southeast Regional and National Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl.
Members of the School's Hyperion Council traveled
Hyperion CouncilThe Hyperion Council is an undergraduate student organization that focuses on developing projects to strengthen bonds between the local business and university communities. Each year, the council initiates projects that link the university to at-risk communities and promotes important business concepts including market economics, entrepreneurship, personal and financial success, and business ethics to better themselves, their communities and their countries.
The Council’s projects have included the UM Jamaica Project, which provided business and development training to women running small businesses in Jamaica. In 2009, the council will also begin assisting the American Red Cross to develop a new marketing initiative in an effort to improve its brand among 18 to 25 year olds.
