2019 Regional Ethics Bowl: Home

How to use this Guide

Each Ethics Bowl case has its own library guide.  At that guide you can access the original APPE cases, as well as links to a selection of embedded articles found within the cases.  Cases have also been sorted into groups based on the topics and research areas involved.  Topic areas can be accessed via the tabs at the top of the page.  Further resources, available at the SU libraries, will appear along the right side of the page.

These resources have been gathered to make it easier for faculty to use these cases in their classes, and to facilitate cross-campus dialogue and interdisciplinary research. 

Ethics Bowl Date

The 24th Annual Northeast Regional Ethics Bowl Competition will be held at SU on Saturday November 23rd, 2019.

All rounds, aside from the finals, will be held in Perdue Hall. The Finals will be held in the Guerreri Academic Commons Assembly Hall.

Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl by the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics

Every year, the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics (APPE) sponsors eleven Regional Intercollegiate Ethics Bowls and one National Bowl.  Hundreds of teams representing several thousand students prepare 15 new cases every semester, and the cases themselves are a resource for the teaching and study of contemporary practical ethics.  The cases require students to engage in moral theory, applied ethical reasoning, but also a broad base of interdisciplinary research across fields in the sciences, professions, and humanities.  Salisbury University Libraries has compiled this resource guide for faculty and students interested in discussing contemporary ethical issues in their teaching, study and research.

About The Northeast Regional Ethics Bowl

The 2019 Northeast Regional Competition is being held at Salisbury University, and we will be acting as host to teams from across the region, including several schools from across Maryland.  We are one of the most competitive regions in the country, with several dozen teams competing from private academies and colleges, and public research as well as regional comprehensive universities. The top scoring schools will qualify to compete in the National Competition in the Spring of 2020, as SU’s team has done for 2 of the past 6 years.  The competition itself will take place on November the 23rd and will have an 8pm final round open to the public.
