Ethics and the Olympics

October 3, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Have you ever watched the Olympics and found yourself thinking about more than just the sports or the athletes? Have you questioned how a host nation was chosen? Or how much money is spent on everything from the arenas to the opening and closing ceremonies, or even the artificial snow? Have you considered the environmental impacts before, during and after the Olympic games? Or what role countries with a history of corruption and bribery can or should have in the Olympics? If so, this facilitated panel discussion is for you.

With the help of our panelists, Professors Matthew Andrews and Gabriella Hulsey, we will discuss the ethics involved with the Olympics, including the history, economy, environment, and human and civil rights. While we will have a moderator helping to facilitate the discussion by asking several topical questions, we also want to encourage the audience to ask questions of our panelists either by QR code or speaking up at the end.

As an added bonus, this event qualifies for Campus Life Experience credit, and there will be pizza to follow, where we hope you’ll stay and continue in conversation.
