Ethics Table Brown Bag Lunches, 2012-2013


The Ethics Table Brown Bag Lunches began in Spring semester 2013, thanks to feedback from the 2011-2012 Ethics Table (now called the Ethics Table Fellows) that a space was wanted for informal discussion of ethics in addition to the fellowship which focuses mainly on projects. See “The first Ethics Table.”
