“GMOs and the Environment” attracted significant attention as part of the Rock Ethics Institute Research Ethics Lecture Series. During the event Jonathan Beever, with the help of Kristin Bergman and Michael Rury, moderated a panel of speakers including Dr. Paul Thompson (Michigan State), Dr. Kyle Whyte (Michigan State), Dr. Bart Gremmen (Wageningen University), and Dr. David Mortensen (Penn State). The panelists discuss a range of ethical issues related to questions of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and their environmental implications.
Maybe you know someone cheating in class. Or you know someone getting bullied or intimidated because of their beliefs. Or maybe you have experienced something like this yourself. It's not always easy or clear to decide what to do. We know.

By working with you to develop tools to identify ethical challenges and issues, weigh options, and consider other viewpoints, we can help you take a stand for your beliefs and the interests of others.
