TEP outreach operated in full swing from 2010 to 2015.
USC students continue to use ethics materials as part of TIRP.
Ethics remains integral to CALIS curriculum and professional development.
The Teaching Ethics Program (TEP) is an outreach program based on the nationally recognized USC Dornsife service-learning model developed by CALIS.
CALIS trains undergraduate volunteers each year to introduce competing ethical perspectives and lead ethics case study discussions in neighborhood high schools.
TEP teams are primarily recruited from philosophy classes and supported by USC professors offering credit options as part of their courses.
To participate, USC undergraduates must participate in a 2-hr training session. The "TEP core" provides the basic frame and tools applied to ethical dilemmas:
Please contact CALIS if you are...
... a student interested in volunteering with TEP
... a professor interested in supporting TEP by offering a credit option in your course
... a high school teacher interested in inviting a TEP team to your classroom
TEP is sponsored by the USC Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics
In USC College's new Teaching Ethics Program, undergraduates instruct high school students, using controversial case studies as discussion points.College News—December 13, 2010
