The 6th Ethical Forum of the University Foundation will take place on Thursday 29 November 2007, from 2 to 6 p.m.
The Forum subject will be :
IS IT WRONG TO TEACH WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG ? Is it (still) part of a university’s job to teach its students moral standards and social responsibility ?
Ten personnalities will then discuss the issue of moral teaching in and by the universities. Is it necessary ? Does it constitute one of the main duties of universities ?
How can we, in other words, reconciliate the sometimes cheerful and sometimes pompous moral discourse of universities -lest it becomes illusory or even hypocritical- with the need to teach students, apart from the high skills they need to face the labor market, how to lead their life ?
Registration is free of charge but obligatory by November 22.
