The Association for Practical and Professional Ethics sponsors the annual Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl. After advancing through the Southeast regional competition in November, UAB moved on to a round of the nation’s top 32 college teams.

This year’s team was selected from a College of Arts and Sciences Department of Philosophy class, “Contemporary Moral Issues,” taught by department chair Gregory Pence, Ph.D. The team selection process mirrored the strategy of the national championship-winning team in 2010. Two UAB teams attended the Southeast regional competition in 2012, with the senior team advancing to nationals.
