Real Problems

By tackling real-world issues SCU students get a deep understanding of ethical choices.

Would it be ethical to pay citizens to vote, or to make voting mandatory? Are plans for 3-D printed guns protected by free speech?

These are real-life ethics questions. And Santa Clara’s Ethics Bowl team is thoughtful—and quick—in answering them.

That focus earned them recognition as the top Ethics Bowl team in the country in 2018.

“Their ability to think on the fly and as a team was just incredible,” says head coach Erin Bradfield, a lecturer in philosophy. “You could also see how much fun they were having, which exemplifies the spirit of the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl.”
