Universities, Ethics and Professions

Universities, Ethics and Professions Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Every business and organization today needs to impress stakeholders with its ethics policy. This reflects the increasing emphasis on ethics in public and professional life, evident in the way the UK Council for Industry and Higher Education encourages universities to develop their own ethics policies. Universities, Ethics and Professions helps the reader to understand the impact on universities of an array of ethical demands in recruitment, teaching and research. It also explores the role of the university as a long term contributor to ethical reflection and debate, and shaper of ethical discourse.

Synopsis:

Every business and organization today needs to impress stakeholders with its ethics policy. Universities, Ethics and Professions examines how this emphasis on ethics by the professional world is impacting universities, institutions that have long been key contributors to ethical reflection and debate, and shapers of ethical discourse. Changing objectives, globalization, and public concerns continue to bring professionalism, and commercialization, into the dialogue about what ethics mean on campus.

Universities, Ethics and Professions offers an in-depth examination of the changing landscape of academic ethics, with case-study analysis from sociologists, educationalists, management specialists and philosophers. As professionalism becomes an integral part of university teaching, training, and research, this book considers the impact on the ethical practices of academics, and explores the importance of universities remaining sites of open discourse on ethics in the future.
