Ethics Week Was a Success
Ethics Week was held February 24-February 28. Throughout the week, students participated in various activities in the Perdue School of Business (PSB). On Monday and Tuesday, the PSB Student Business Leaders set up and organized a table where students could answer the “question of the day” about ethics to receive candy and a copy of Frank Perdue’s Ethical Will. Monday’s question was “What does ethics mean to you?” and Tuesday’s was “What is the biggest ethical dilemma facing this generation?”
On Wednesday, there was a Scavenger Hunt around Perdue Hall to find the Frank Perdue bobble head. The first clue was announced using a Tweet from the Perdue School’s Twitter account. The Scavenger Hunt ultimately led students throughout Perdue Hall and finally ended in the Dean's Office.
On Thursday, students signed the ethical pledge in the atrium with the help of the Student Business Leaders. Throughout the week, trivia questions were posted on the PSB Facebook page and a student won a prize each day. A daily ethical quote was sent out on the Perdue School’s Twitter account, which ultimately led to an increase of more than 10 percent in followers for the PSB account.
The final culminating event was a Case Competition where students could write a case solution to compete for $100 or three honorable mention prizes. The winner of the Case Competition was Caroline Haymen. Imoleayo Alabi, Gloria Majchrzak and Tim Higgins received honorable mention. Overall, Ethics Week was a true success and brought increased awareness around the Perdue School of Business.
