Penn State To Host Sports Ethics Conference

0

The Penn State Center for the Study of Sports in Society will host a conference on sports ethics this April.

Two sessions will be held, with the first on April 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the second on April 7 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It will be held in the Bennett Pierce Living Center (110 Henderson Building) and in the courtroom of the Lewis Katz Building. A schedule of events for the conference can be found here; a more detailed schedule will be released closer to the date of the conference.

The conferences, which are co-sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Health and Human Development, and the Rock Ethics institute, will feature sports practitioners, administrators, and sports ethicists from Penn State and other universities covering important ethical issues seen in sports today — athlete role modeling, the commercialization of sports, and the environmental impact of sporting events among others.

During the conference, the winner of a student-essay contest about arising ethical issues in the field will be announced.
