Can Virtue Be Taught? Is Character Education Possible?

Thursday February 23

5 p.m. | Edwards Recital Hall

This panel discussion, involving students, faculty members and guest speaker CCU Trustee Oran Smith, explores the role that character education should play in today's educational institutions. Starting from elementary school through high school to college, educators are attempting through various means and programs to teach honesty, integrity, compassion and conscientiousness. Questions covered include: Are these attempts to teach virtue really effective? Is it realistic to expect that teachers and programs will improve students' moral character?

Presented by: The Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values
