Dr. Nate Olson (Philosophy) let us know how our CSUB Ethics team did at the California Regional Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl.
"Our CSUB team put forward a very strong showing at the California Regional Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl this weekend at Cabrillo College (in Aptos). We won our rounds against Occidental College and Chapman University, tied New Mexico State, and narrowly lost our final round to Chico State. That left us just short of qualifying for the national competition.
I am incredibly proud of the three members of our team: Andrew Bolich (Philosophy and Psychology double major), Dubrea Sanders (Political Science major and Philosophy, Communications, and Psychology minors), and James White (History major and Philosophy minor). All the hard work they put in over the course of the semester showed at the competition as they skillfully argued a wide range of topics, including the idea of transracialism, legal requirements for Amish midwives, the ethics of tax havens, and restrictions on Kosher and Halal practices in Belgium."
Support for the team this year came from the School of Arts and Humanities, a Teaching Innovation Grant from the Faculty Teaching and Learning Center, and the Kegley Institute of Ethics
