JMU wants to help you develop critical thinking skills to approach and resolve the inevitable ethical situations that you will encounter during your Madison experience, and in life. Ethical reasoning takes practice, though, so we introduce you to the Eight Key Question ethical reasoning strategy early on and give all incoming first-year students the opportunity to practice on your own (now) and in groups during It’s Complicated at 1787 August Orientation. 

Get prepared now for this ethical challenge! Complete this One Book step with a sense of curiosity and imagination, noticing how quickly your brain works to make judgments and decisions.

  • Watch the “Overdose” video.
