More info about Ethics Bowl 2017

Each member of our Ethics Bowl team has been committed to learning and analyzing the 14 cases. They ranged from conflicts of interest in local government to the equity of Washtenaw County’s prenatal care services, and from humane treatment guidelines for prisoners to building contractors’ responsibilities to homeowners.

Parking. There is one structure you can use if you do not have a U-M parking permit. It is the Palmer Drive lot. On SATURDAY, the gates will NOT be up. You can go to visitor parking. It is $1.40 an hour.  If you do have a U-M parking permit, please remember that you cannot park in ANY space that has 24 monitoring, such as the Gold or business places (unless you have such a permit).

On SUNDAY, the Palmer lot gates will be up. (The Fletcher lot will also be open for a while) That said, please park ONLY in those places that are not monitored for 24 hours. If you park in Gold or business parking etc. you will be ticketed. If there is no sign listing these restrictions, you can park there. There is an event on Sunday afternoon at one of the U venues.

Invitation. We invite you to join us on Saturday. Returning with us, Sunday, would be awesome.  The team name is Ypsilanti Youth. We are easy to find because are the coolest and most awesome team there. Smile.

Please abide by the rules of the Ethics Bowl. They are strictly enforced.

  • No talking during rounds.
  • Turn off all electronic devices while the rounds are happening.

Saturday morning, Ypsilanti Youth want to have breakfast together.  Our coach-mentors from the U-M Department of Philosophy’s Outreach Program will be joining us.  If needed, I will pick up team members so we can have a 10 AM breakfast. Please join us. If you join us, you will need to pay for your breakfast; DTMAC is paying for the team and the coaches.
