  The Kegley Institute of Ethics at CSU Bakersfield is now bringing Ethics Week as a virtual event hosted through Zoom from Sept. 14 through 18. Students staff, and faculty are welcome to join in any of the events.

  The four events hosted through the week include “Ethics in Film,” “Ethics in Leadership,” “KIE Faculty Colloquia Series” and “KIE Ethics Across the Curriculum Workshop.” Each event focuses on a different member of the community.  

  “Ethics Week touches everyone on campus, as it hosts several events to target different audiences,” said Michael Burroughs, director of the Kegley Institute of Ethics.

  “Ethics in Film” is a visible concentration to help students, specifically undergraduates see the relevance of ethics through popular films.

  “Students engage and learn more when they are interested in the topic,” said Burroughs. 

Hence why the film this year is “Iron Man 3.” The film addresses war, prejudice and other topics relate to ethics.  

  “Ethics in Leadership” will include speaker Traco Matthews.  

  Matthews is a member of the Kern County community and also part of a non-profit social justice organization.

  “It is best to learn ethics in leadership by having a one on one. Having major figures share their growth and experiences,” Burroughs stated.
