Course Description

The Ethical Culture Workshop encourages government officials and employees to discover the ethical challenges they will face in the coming year through exploration of the issues with class members. The effectiveness of the workshop format is peer discussion (student-to-student, colleague-to-colleague), rather than teacher-to-student instruction. Student interaction has the greatest influence on moral and ethical reasoning. There will be opportunities to share stories, express ethical judgments and explain decisions. The high level of tension fostered by ethical dilemmas and case studies spurs government officers and employees to challenge their own assumptions and beliefs, thereby enhancing their moral and ethical thinking skills.

Attendees will participate in a review the New Jersey Local Government Ethics Law (N.J.S.A. 40:9-22.1 et seq.) featuring the foundation and pillars of government ethics. Participants will be guided through a review and renewal of their ethics “pledges” as they learn about the quickly changing ethical landscape impacting local governments. As the final pillar and pledge of “Transparency” is explored, a special emphasis will be given to the emerging dangers of government transparency in the digital age and the growing responsibilities of government officers and employees whose ethical conduct is on display.
