Welcome to the Siegel Institute! I encourage you to peruse this site to discover the new and exciting offerings as well as information about our 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.

This year, we will continue to offer a series of workshops leading up to the March 20, 2015, Phenomenal Women's Conference. These pre-Conference workshops allow participants to explore topics of interest in a relaxed workshop-style setting.  This coming year, we have planned a series of five 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 us.

OF SPECIAL INTEREST

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!

Taking classes at the Siegel Institute remains one of the best decisions I've made in my graduate career at KSU. These classes are enriching and the discussions I shared with my classmates and Dr. Johnston very educative and interesting. The Foundations of Ethics class is a great class to take since it provides the necessary framework to understanding ethical and philosophical theories. Be prepared for readings by philosophers like Hinman and Singer whose theories will eventually spill over to the other classes and help you understand the ethical principles better. The Directed Study provided a great opportunity for me to apply what I had learned in the other two classes (Foundations of Ethics, and Leading and Shaping an Ethical Culture). You won't regret taking classes here, I assure you!
