We are delighted by your interest in the D. Abbott Turner Program in Ethics and Servant Leadership (EASL) Forum. The EASL Forum is an academic year program that explores paths toward a more just and ethically engaged society. This year a combination of 15 undergraduate and graduate students will be selected. These students will take part in a shared journey that incorporates leadership building, consciousness raising, ethical inquiry, self-exploration, and relationship building. EASL scholars are critical to fulfilling the overall mission of the Center for Ethics that is to help Emory leaders develop the power to serve and lead for the common good.
Through the use of films, discussions, service projects, community excursions, and invited speakers such as scholars, activists, and community leaders we will struggle to address questions such as, “What does it mean to be ethical?” What are my obligations to the wider world and to unknown others?” How can strive to undo structures and systems that wrongly limit people’s ability to flourish?
OVERVIEW OF THE FORUM
This year’s forum will kick off with an opening retreat at the Nantahala Outdoor Center on Sept. 16-18. Following that weekend of ropes courses, river rafting, small group exercises, and leadership training, the EASL Forum will begin its weekly two-hour meetings for the remainder of the academic year (Fall and Spring Semesters). These meetings will focus on pressing social issues, including bullying, the environment, race and class, sexuality and gender, law, urban development, and the intersection between ethics and the arts.
As part of the Forum students, in groups of 3-4, will be paired with a local Atlanta non-profit to undertake a series of volunteer and service activities, including designing, developing and implementing a service project needed by the organization. Forum Scholars will present on their projects at our closing Celebration Banquet at the end of Spring semester.
