Below is an announcement from the Mansfield Ethics and Public Affairs Program at The University of Montana-Missoula. As a student and employee of UM, I studied under and worked with Deni Elliott (wiki) in the Philosophy department and the Center for Ethics (now the Mansfield Ethics and…). In addition to the courses I took from Dr. Elliott and programs I worked with her on, I also had the privilege of sitting in on this particular class. Deni is a phenomenal professor (and human being).
People travel from around the world for this course. If you are interested in teaching ethics and can get to Missoula for a week (it can easily double as a very worthwhile vacation), then I would encourage you to sign up – asap:
