Ethical Grand Challenges
*Undergraduates starting in 2020 will take the Social Justice Challenge in Year 1 and the Sustainability Challenge in Year 2. For returning Year 2 & Year 3+ students the Ethical Grand Challenges will remain the same.*
The Ethical Grand Challenges is the University’s Social Responsibility Signature Programme for undergraduates. It gives students the opportunity to explore three challenges facing the world in the 21st century: Sustainability, Social Justice and Workplace Ethics. The aim of the programme is to help students become informed, thoughtful, critical and socially responsible, so they can graduate as citizens and leaders, who are aware of, and are capable of exercising ethical, social and environmental responsibilities.
The Ethical Grand Challenges are part of Stellify. Completion of the challenges contributes to the Stellify Award, but each challenge is worth doing in its own right and will be recorded on students’ official transcripts.
Find out about the Sustainability Challenge and encourage students who missed the Challenge to attend a catch up session.
Promote the Workplace Ethics Challenge to final year students, so they can tackle ethical dilemmas in the workplace.
