Welcome to the Siegel Institute's web site! I encourage you to peruse the site to discover the new and exciting offerings as well as information about continuing programs and projects. Take a moment to explore our many workshops and conferences as well as the course offerings in the Graduate Certificate in Leadership and Ethics. Of special note is our new Leadership and Ethics Abroad couse which will include a visit to Costa Rica in the summer of 2013 and a Technology and Ethics course which focuses on the ethical impact of technology on business and society by examining issues in medicine, research, information technology, and the environment.
Another exciting first is the Institute's Ethics Scholarship which will be an annual award. The student receiving the scholarship will work on a research project related to his/her own academic field and explore the ethical implications in this research area. It is our hope that this will encourage graduate students to explore the ethical ramifications and add ethical discussions to their thesis or dissertation work.
We are also offering a new series of workshops this year leading up to the March 22, 2013, Phenomenal Women's Conference. We have been told by past conference participants that it was not possible to attend all the workshops they were interested in during our one-day event. Consequently, we planned this series of six workshops for women who are interested in enhancing their leadership potential.
I hope you enjoy discovering the various programs and projects offered by the Siegel Institute and that you will choose to attend some of our events. If you have any questions or would like more information about the Siegel Institute, please feel free to contact me!

In a world that is characterized by increasingly complex challenges, leadership plays a role that is more critical than ever. The Siegel Institute's Graduate Certificate Program in Leadership and Ethics offers a unique opportunity to develop both a theoretical and practical understanding of leadership and ethics. Program courses foster cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives on leadership and ethics, and challenge students to critically examine real-world problems and propose solutions from leadership and ethical perspectives. This program is instrumental to training future leaders and building ethical leadership capacity.
Recently released, Sports: Peacebuilding and Ethics, edited by the Siegel Institute's executive director Linda Johnston, shows that sports can be an effective mechanism for peacebuilding, especially when incorporated into conflict-resolution programs. Among the questions explored in the volume are: various aspects of culture and how they can help shape sports programs; the role of a coach in creating a culture of peace, and how this culture can fit into a peacebuilding process. Contributors also examine the role of sports in trauma relief programs in Rwanda; the role of universities in sports; and the role of sports in the demilitarization of child soldiers as well as tackle some of the legitimate concerns raised about using sports for peacebuilding.
Congratulations Linda and contributors on this outstanding book!
