Ethics Bowl

Whether it's through volunteering or competing yourself, we've got a spot for you at one of our ethics bowls!

Ethics bowl is a debate-style competition that focuses on contemporary moral problems. Unlike typical debate competitions, the judging criterion focuses more on key elements of constructing a well-reasoned argument in a civil manner. There are a few different ways you can be involved in ethics bowl at DePauw.
