NCICU Ethics Bowl
The High Point University team was the champion of North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities’ (NCICU) 9th Annual Ethics Bowl held in February. The team faced Belmont Abbey College in the final round. The theme this year was Ethics in the Agriculture, and the question for the finals was “What ethical responsibilities does the United States have to support the agricultural industry in securing the qualified workers that it needs?”
High Point University had faced Salem College in the semifinals, as Belmont Abbey faced North Carolina Wesleyan College. The case for that round considered the ethics of producing genetically modified and/or gene-edited food.
