Ethics Training Facilitators

The Graduate Studies Office in collaboration with the Ethics Institute at Dartmouth developed an institution-wide program of training in the basics of professional ethics for first-year graduate students.

Become a Facilitator

The Graduate Ethics Program has three components: an opening session during orientation, four small group discussions on focal topics to be taken fall term of the first year of graduate school, and an online ethics survey.

For the second phase of the Ethics program, Aine Donovan, Executive Director of the Ethics Institute at Dartmouth College offers a four-part ethics training session focusing on key ethical issues to train future Ethics Facilitators.

Graduate students, postdocs, administrators, and faculty who attend the facilitator training sessions will gain skills in-case style teaching methods and develop a framework for thinking about ethical issues that occur in science research. Those who attend the training sessions will then facilitate four ethics workshops for a small group of first-year students in the fall of 2017. Trainers will receive $50 per facilitated session.
