The Donahue Center hosted the inaugural Donahue R.E.A.D.S event in Alumni Hall with students, faculty and staff discussing the book by Minouche Shafik, “What We Owe Each Other – A New Social Contract for a Better Society”.  Donahue R.E.A.D.S. encourages Responsibility, Ethics, Advocacy, Discovery and Stewardship. “What We Owe Each Other” was the perfect catalyst to spark discussion and share experiences, and important ideas for positively transforming our world.

Ethics Fest

Students at engagement station

November 4, 2021

Ethics Fest 2021 was the largest cross-campus event ever hosted by our college with well over 300 attendees. After an introduction by Manning School of Business Dean Sandra Richtermeyer, Chancellor Jacqueline Moloney shared remarks to open the event, with students, faculty, and staff from departments across the university in attendance.

The purpose of Ethics Fest 2021 was to facilitate a dynamic, high-engagement, community-building student event to raise ethics awareness and invite student participation and learning across a diverse set of ethics and social responsibility contexts. The event included a curated collection of interactive ‘stations’ featuring engaging ethics-related content and context. Topics ranged from ethics in business and entrepreneurship, income inequality, and job searches to environmental and sustainability challenges and the use of artificial intelligence in decision making. Students had great discussions with the many UMass Lowell faculty members and staff who were running the engagement stations, networked with peers, and filled out their event "passports" to receive a free Ethics Fest t-shirt. Participants and organizers are excited that the Donahue Center is making this an annual event!  Read more about Ethics Fest in our story, "Students Explore the Gray Areas at ‘Ethics Fest’ ".
