Ethics Team Places Third in National Competition

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.

Robinson Named Africana Artist-in-Residence

Local painter Tommie Robinson is the 2015 Africana Artist-in-Residence; this year’s theme for the residency is "Art, Environment and Race."

Robinson will be in residence in the Africana Studies Department from Monday, March 9, through Friday, March 20. During his visit, co-sponsored with the College of Arts + Architecture, and in conjunction with the Latibah Collard Green Museum, Robinson will present "The Art of Environment and Race" at 2:00 PM, Thursday, March 19, in the Cone University Center, McKnight Hall. On March 20, at 6:00 PM., there will be an opening reception for Robinson’s exhibit "Environment and Social Justice" at the Latibah Collard Green Museum (720 Tuckaseegee Rd.) In addition, Robinson will facilitate a number of student-focused presentations on the relationship between his art and the environment, race and issues of social justice.

Described as the "first black artist in the Guild of Charlotte Artists," Robinson works in oil, acrylic, water color, egg tempura and graphite. His art addresses a wide range of issues, from the experience of the Africa-descended population in the United States to urban life, the environment, racism and sexism.
