Ethics Week 2021
As announced on February 1, this year’s edition of Ethics Week will take place March 15-20. As has been true since 2004, Ethics Week will include:
- classroom discussions led by instructors on issues related to their courses or disciplines (these are, of course, up to the individual instructors);
- speakers invited to address individual classes;
- public presentations;
- and announcement of the student and faculty winners of the annual Abraham J. Briloff Prizes in Ethics.
The two public events this year are:
Tuesday, March 16, 12:30pm-1:45pm
Wall Street and the Biden Administration
Panelists: Adam Hollander, Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP, James Lam, James Lam & Associates, and David Rosenberg, Department of Law, Baruch
Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity as we welcome a panel that will discuss the new administration’s approach to finance, financial regulation and ethics including such areas as the SEC, the Fed, disclosure, transparency, consumer protections, ESG and the like. What influence might the various appointees have? What legislation and executive orders can we expect? What kind of enforcement actions might the Federal Government bring? How might the markets react to these changes?

Fostering Academic Integrity on Exams: Alternative Approaches to Online Proctoring Solutions
Panelists: Tolga Aydinliyim, Stephan Dilchert, Alex Mills, Narendra Paul Loomba Department of Management, Valerie Watnick, Department of Law, and Ron Whiteman, Department of Psychology
Sponsored by the CTL, this event shares diverse approaches that members of our faculty are taking to encourage academic integrity—approaches that don’t rely on the use of online proctoring solutions. The question of how to foster academic integrity in teaching, particularly when it comes to high-stakes exams, is of great concern to many faculty and students. Approaches to academic integrity in online teaching are complicated, as the test-taking environment is no longer bound by the physical location of a classroom. In response to this increased complexity, a range of techniques and approaches have developed from the pedagogical (choice of assignment and assessment design) to the technological (choice of digital platforms and automated proctoring solutions). As best practice, these choices are interrelated—and technological decisions should not override pedagogical, ethical, and student-centered concerns.

Ethics Week evolved from curricula in our three schools that include emphases on ethical reasoning and decision-making. It has long been generously supported by the Charles Dreifus Ethics-Across-the-Curriculum Initiative.
