The 2019 Institute will be held May 19-24, 2019, with a focus on Global Health.
The Ethical Leadership Summer Institute (ELSI) is an “experience accelerator,” providing a bridge between academic and applied learning, with the goal of jumpstarting the formation of participants’ professional identity and leadership development. ELSI reflects Haverford’s commitment to a multifaceted education that emphasizes ethical decision-making and choices.
Through a one-week residential experience, ELSI offers participants a unique blend of theory and practice through:
- Conversations with alumni about challenging situations and ethical issues which they have confronted over their careers in the field.
- Introduction to intellectual frameworks, ideas, and case studies directly relevant to different aspects of professional activity and the ethical challenges that arise in those contexts.
- Seminar-style dialogues, focused on analyzing and debating ethical dilemmas, decisions, and consequences.
- A peer community that shares the same commitment to interrogating ethical issues.
ELSI is supported by the Initiative for Ethical Engagement and Leadership.
