Center Partners with APPE for New Ethics Bowl Study

The Parr Center for Ethics and the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics are excited to announce the first-ever study on the impact of the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl. The study, to be administered this Fall, will consider the development of various intellectual traits among program participants. Participation in the study involves completing four online surveys (about 5-20 minutes), completed at three-week intervals between October and December 2023. These can be completed in class, during team meetings, or simply on students’ own time. The study design requires two groups of students at each school: some IEB-participating students and some non-IEB students to function as a control group.


We are grateful to the Intellectual Humility Science project at Georgia State University, the John Templeton Foundation, the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics, and the Center for Practical Ethics at the University of Mississippi for their generous support for this study.
