Ethics Champions

The Ethics Champion will engage with the DFEI at UCCS to spread ethical learning opportunities to their respective campus as well as share successes and best practices with all the SCHEC schools.

Ethics champions are expected to make a substantial contribution to facilitating the objectives as part of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program. They encourages learning opportunities in ethical thought and decision making to their respective campus and area of focus as well as develop materials for ethical education in the classroom, workshop, or other platform. Ethics Fellows share their ideas in Ethics Roundtables at UCCS or on their campus. During their term (academic year), they serve as the primary contact for their college and area of focus to the DFEI at UCCS team. A SCEC Ethics Champion earns a stipend during their term and receives training and support from the DFEI at UCCS

Past Ethics Champions
  • Adjunct Instructor of Business, Adams State University

     Deanna Bartee

    Biography

    Deanna is passionate about ethics because of the impact that ethics has on a person’s life, the outcomes of organizations, and ultimately society. As a result, she enjoys researching this topic and sharing her expertise with all who will listen. Currently, Deanna is serving as an adjunct instructor at Adams State University’s School of Business. She and her husband Dale also own and operate their organic farm where they raise alfalfa, quinoa, flax, beef cattle, sheep, and poultry. Between these responsibilities and homeschooling her two boys, Deanna has found a busy, yet rewarding balance in life in which she can continue to be a life-long learner, apply her learnings, and share her knowledge with others.

    Ethics Education Project (2018-2019)

    Deanna’s approach to this year’s ethics project is that of the train-the-trainer model. Deanna will offer a presentation entitled “The Ethics of Competition” as part of the ASU’s faculty lecture series on December 6th. The contents of this presentation result from her research into the correlation that seems to exist between the competitive climate and the ethical climate in organizations. This presentation lends insight into why codes of ethics and organizational policies are often ineffective in curbing unethical employee behaviors and why good employees make unethical decisions. The ultimate purpose of this presentation is to encourage the audience to consider how the motives behind their goals can conflict with their goal of behaving ethically.

    Additionally, Deanna anticipates hosting a Lunch-and-Learn workshop on ethics during the spring semester. Using Forsha’s (2017) article entitled Virtue and Moral Development, Changing Ethics Instruction in Business School Education, as the foundation for the discussion, Deanna’s goal for this workshop is to discover and explore the ethics conversations that are taking place across ASU’s campus and encourage more of these interactions. In line with the purpose of ASU’s Lunch-and-Learn program, which is to bring faculty and staff together to discuss and analyze important topics, this conversation will hopefully create an awareness for the value and need of ethics conversations particularly with our students.

    Impact

    Deanna Bartee hosted a faculty lecture entitled “The Ethics of Competition” to over 100 ASU students and several faculty and community members.

    Campus Teaching Ethics Workshop: Why Do Good People Engage in Unethical Acts?

    Lamar Community College staff, faculty, and students were invited to an on-campus ethics training workshop, hosted by Pat Christensen and Mittie Helm on March 11, 2020. Mittie organized the event and the topic. The topic discussed was “Why Do Good People Engage in Unethical Acts?”. The workshop was an activity designed to improve student understanding about business ethics. Twelve staff and faculty members from LCC attended and one student. The feedback was positive from the workshop and attendees learned new information while being engaged through group discussion. During the workshop, the attendees discussed the following questions within their groups:

    1. Studies show that people primed to think about business profits will make different choices than people facing the same decision who have been primed to think about activity ethically. Can you explain how that might affect you in your work life?
    2. Can you think of a situation where you made a decision that you regret and probably would have chosen differently had you looked at the choice in a different way?
    3. How do politicians and advertisers use framing to channel people’s decisions?
    4. How might framing adversely affect your ethical decisions making in your projected workplace?
    5. How can you work to ensure that ethical considerations stay in your frame of reference when you make decisions in your career and your life?
    6. How can firms help their employees to keep ethical considerations in mind when they make decisions?

    1.    Classroom/Course Ethics Instruction
           a.    Existing course: CNG 132 – Network Security Fundamentals
                  i.    18 Students were impacted. Other opportunities were restricted due to campus closures.
                  ii.    Two Guest Speakers 
                        1.    Frank Gearhart, Ethics in AI and Machine Learning
                        2.    Arthur Cooper, PCI Compliance in Business
                  iii.    DFEI Principles: Integrity, Accountability, Rule of Law, and Viability
    Our guest speakers this semester especially highlighted the need for awareness in decision-making that affects automated systems, such as smart bombs and credit card transactions.
          b.    New Course Curriculum: The Cybersecurity department is in the process of developing our own ethics curriculum to be used in a new course or possibly implemented in other courses. 
                  i.    This process includes reviewing current PPCC and CCCS ethics curriculum and determining the cybersecurity approach. Currently Ethics is a Philosophy course, with little input from Business or Cybersecurity professionals.
                 ii.    This course will impact all Cybersecurity students; current enrollment is over 400 students.
                 iii.    This course will be taught by anyone qualified in the Cybersecurity department, including Faculty and Instructors.
                iv.    The skills of Cybersecurity can be difficult to apply, as these same skills are used by criminals. It is imperative for students to be able to differentiate when and how these skills are acceptable, and when their use is illegal. All of the DFEI Principles apply to these skills, especially Integrity, Accountability, Fairness, Respect, and Rule of Law.
    2.    UCCS Ethics in Cybersecurity Consortium/Event: This semester, the PPCC community participated and presented in this all-day event. 
           a.    At least 2 educators and 8 students participated for at least one session; many attended more sessions.
           b.    Attendance at this event created several opportunities for Daniels Fund Principles discussions in April’s courses. Participants were also given the opportunity to write a reflection paper on their experiences for extra credit. All Daniels Fund Principles were covered in discussions in all courses! Students really enjoyed the event.

    Campus Teaching Ethics Workshop: Why Do Good People Engage in Unethical Acts?

    Lamar Community College staff, faculty, and students were invited to an on-campus ethics training workshop, hosted by Pat Christensen and Mittie Helm on March 11, 2020. Mittie organized the event and the topic. The topic discussed was “Why Do Good People Engage in Unethical Acts?”. The workshop was an activity designed to improve student understanding about business ethics. Twelve staff and faculty members from LCC attended and one student. The feedback was positive from the workshop and attendees learned new information while being engaged through group discussion. During the workshop, the attendees discussed the following questions within their groups:

    1. Studies show that people primed to think about business profits will make different choices than people facing the same decision who have been primed to think about activity ethically. Can you explain how that might affect you in your work life?
    2. Can you think of a situation where you made a decision that you regret and probably would have chosen differently had you looked at the choice in a different way?
    3. How do politicians and advertisers use framing to channel people’s decisions?
    4. How might framing adversely affect your ethical decisions making in your projected workplace?
    5. How can you work to ensure that ethical considerations stay in your frame of reference when you make decisions in your career and your life?
    6. How can firms help their employees to keep ethical considerations in mind when they make decisions?

Her academic credentials include a BA in Organizational Management/Human Resource Management, an MS in Homeland Security, and an MBA. Teresa retired from the US Air Force after twenty years of service. Her combined military, emergency management, and academic backgrounds positioned her to build a program development team of subject matter experts that contributed to creating PPCC’s first bachelor's degree. The program is delivered online and provides rigorous experiential learning to first responders in local and distant communities. Leadership and ethics are central to the program overall and run through each required course with intent to shape and equip emergency service administrators with the skills required to serve a community in times of peace or crisis.

    Teresa from Alaska and has lived in Colorado Springs since 1995. She oldest daughter is a DU graduate and a manager in the property restoration field. Her oldest son serves proudly in the US Marine Corps. Her youngest daughter is on a service assignment with the American Conservation Experiment (ACE) in the depths of the Grand Canyon. And her youngest son is a Special Olympian.

    Impact
    1. BAS ESA Course Modifications: The PPCC BAS ESA program was launch in Aug 2018. Although course learning outcomes on ethics are throughout the program, adding DFEI principles will provide a consistent compass for arriving at optimal decision-making in emergency management. 
    2. Modified ESA 300 – Leadership for Emergency Services Assignments and ESA 489 – Emergency Service Capstone Assignments    
      1. ESA 300 is the first course and a pre-requisite course for all students in the BAS ESA program. Although this course already has ethics content, adding the DFEI principles expands and enhances those assignments. 
      2. Students will face definitions, application, experiential learning in high impact scenarios at select modules to include the final. 
      3. ESA 489 is the final course in the program where students face ethical dilemmas and must use the DFEI principles to make and justify decisions. 
      4. Ethics is one of our program learning outcomes, which will be assessed during our first program review. Having the DFEI principles as a required tool in the program will strengthen our program review and assessments. 
      5. Our young program currently has approximately 50 students, full and part-time, impacted by these changes, and we grow more each year. 
    3. Addition of an ethics link to the BAS ESA webpage that tells visitors that our program adheres to DFEI principles. Content for this link is under development and will undergo approval. Estimated exposure is yet to be known.
