The Ethical Public Scholar


As scholars, we have a critical responsibility to uphold principles such as intellectual honesty, rigour, and open communication. Those who work outside the academy, or whose scholarship spans the academic and non-academic realms, have additional responsibilities and often face more complex or different ethical dilemmas and conflicting moral imperatives in their work. This workshop will feature three experts speaking to the ethical dimensions of scholarship in different contexts: in work involving community engagement or partnership, in the health field, and in the work of ‘public intellectuals’ from any sector.
