Ethics Matters

Q2 2020

Colleges and universities around the globe have transited their students off campus to online learning platforms in efforts to fight the spread of COVID-19. StudentCPT chapters are staying engaged while utilizing technology, despite being unable to meet
in person.

Oklahoma State University
Oklahoma State University StudentCPT members recently tuned into a virtual meeting. Old and new officers completed a fun facts sheet, which was then turned into a fun Get to Know You Kahoot game with the chapter members. Members also established chapter goals for the upcoming school year.

Florida State University
CPT President, Alfonzo Alexander, recently spoke to Florida State University StudentCPT members along with two business classes via Zoom. During his presentation, Alexander shared personal experiences of how he overcame ethical dilemmas early on in his career. He also discussed how to manage chaos during challenging times.
