Ethics and Leadership: Lessons from the Holocaust
May 20, 2019 @ 8:00 am - May 30, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Join the LEAD office in a 3-credit study abroad experience exploring the concepts of ethics and leadership through the example of the Holocaust. This 10-day traveling learning community will visit Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. There will also be meetings before and after your time in Europe. Ethical leadership will be explored, through examples from the Holocaust, in a way that is applicable to life today so that the lessons of the Holocaust may not be forgotten.
Students and the course facilitator(s) will work together to explore questions such as: Why do people do bad things? How are values and ethics established in individuals, groups and organizations? What are the responsibilities of leaders to establish ethical climates in their organizations and communities? What are the responsibilities of followers and bystanders? Are there universal values and ethical principles in leadership? How does culture influence ethical leadership? What are some helpful approaches to ethical questions? How does this all relate to you today?
