Daniels Fund Principle-based Ethics Education Grant

The Daniels Fund Principle-based Ethics Education Grant (Daniels Fund Faculty Fellows Program) is dedicated to providing support for Mines faculty to integrate principle-based ethics into their curricula. Mines is the first STEM-focused university to receive Daniels Fund grants for ethics. On August 5, 2016, seven Mines faculty were awarded the inaugural Daniels Fund Faculty Fellows award for their proposals on how to incorporate ethics into their courses. The Faculty Fellows are expected to develop lessons, modules or projects that incorporate ethical considerations as a central focus. Upon completing their courses, the Faculty Fellows will assess the activity and develop strategies for adaptation, the goal being to create strategies that can be applied to a variety of courses.  The faculty will then share their results with the campus community.
