The Madison Collaborative leadership team is facilitating workshops with various academic and Student Affairs groups about ethical reasoning and the Eight Key Questions. Several faculty have altered their courses to include discussions of the Eight Key Questions and many Student Affairs programs include a focus on ethical reasoning. The 2013 freshman class had a full introduction to The Madison Collaborative (MC) during 1787 August Orientation through a program entitled "It's Complicated: Ethical Reasoning in Action."
In April 2013, Provost Jerry Benson and Senior Vice President Mark Warner appointed the Madison Collaborative Search Committee, chaired by Executive Assistant to the President Maggie Burkhart Evans. Committee members include Keston Fulcher, Fletcher Linder, Tisha McCoy-Ntiamoah, David McGraw, Kevin Meaney, and Lee Sternberger. The MC Chair and Associate Chair positions have been filled: William J. Hawk will serve as the Chair and Lori Pyle as the Associate Chair.
The Madison Collaborative will provide many opportunities for students, faculty and staff to get involved in curricular and extra-curricular activities. Two exciting opportunities, already underway, are the Research Grant and Program Innovation Grant, which will provide funding to selected applicants to engage in research or to develop new programs that connect to the MC. Students, faculty, and staff are eligible to apply for either grant. In addition, please contact The Madison Collaborative to discuss other, upcoming opportunities to join in MC activities.
