A UNC Charlotte team won third place in the recent Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl Competition; the contest designed to consider complex, contemporary ethical issues.
Teams from more than 100 universities and colleges had competed in regional competitions earlier this year, and 32 regional finalist teams came together for the national event in Costa Mesa, Calif. This is the highest a UNC Charlotte team has ever placed.
The competition was held during the annual meeting for the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics. The top two teams were from Taylor University and Whitworth University.
