The Madison Collaborative: Ethical Reasoning in Action

You are in the main content

Madison Collaborative Implementation

The Madison Collaborative: Ethical Reasoning in Action, adopted as JMU’s Quality Enhancement Plan, embodies and complements the university mission as we promise to prepare students to be “educated and enlightened citizens who lead productive and meaningful lives.” JMU already values and promotes integrity within its community, yet the complex society which our graduates enter calls us to do more. The Madison Collaborative will answer this call wholeheartedly through coordinated and enhanced curricular and co-curricular opportunities that employ a new eight-question ethical reasoning framework to be applied in three domains: personal, professional, and civic life.

The Madison Collaborative (MC) has three overarching goals. The MC will:

  1. Elevate the campus-wide understanding and discourse on ethical reasoning as a teachable, evaluative process.
  2. Provide a unifying framework that aligns campus efforts to teach and assess ethical reasoning.
  3. Encourage multiple avenues of intentional connection among personal, professional, and civic application of ethical reasoning skills in the classroom, co-curricular activities, and student life.
