This course examines moral dimensions of the University and its faculty, students, and staff in their roles as citizens of an academic community.  Our goal is to help students think about how to approach participation in this community and develop their deliberative competencies by questioning academic life and the University from moral and social standpoints.  We will organize our inquiries into three domains:  academic integrity; the University as an academic community; the University’s moral obligations as an institution.
