LSU Shreveport Contingent Attends the Ethics Conference at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point
October 25, 2011
LSU Shreveport LEAD students Brenton Bird, senior biology major from Bossier City, La.; and Long Truong, senior biology major from Shreveport, La.; and Wayne Hogue, director of LSUS LEAD, attended the 26th Annual National Conference on Ethics in America (NCEA) at the United States Military Academy at West Point on October 17-20, 2011. The LSUS group was among 180 undergraduate students and 30 faculty members from across the United States invited to attend the conference where attendees spent three days engaged in intensive discussion and examination of current ethical and moral issues facing our country.
The intent of NCEA is threefold: 1) develop a national awareness of ethical behavior in the undergraduate community; 2) improve collegiate codes of ethics and honor systems across the nation by drawing on the experiences and value systems of students from various colleges and universities; and 3) provide students the opportunity to discuss issues of character and integrity with experienced military, business, and government leaders of character from across varying and diverse branches, fields, and organizations.
The LSUS contingent will put what they learned to use when the LEAD program hosts the first ever LEAD Summit 2011 on November 11, 2011 at LSU Shreveport. LEAD Summit, mirroring NCEA, is a character and leadership development conference for high school students, organized and hosted by students in the LEAD program. The event is the start of a new LEAD program focus on character and leadership education and development at the high school level.
