The third annual UCCS Ethics Initiative Ethics Essay Contest attracted a total of 43 essays from several colleges across the UCCS campus. The Ethics Essay contest gives students an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of principle based ethics and how they would apply it towards a real time ethical situation.
