Steven Mintz’s blogs address issues facing our society today that have an ethical dimension to them. The blogs deal with issues about what is right or wrong behavior; good or bad decisions; and appropriate or inappropriate actions. The “Ethics Sage” blog is broad-based, focusing on “hot-button” issues in political ethics, ethical challenges in using social media, cultivating a work ethic, personal responsibility, and what it means to be a person of integrity. The “Workplace Ethics Advice” blog examines common workplace ethics issues including ethical business practices, conflicts of interest, human resource matters, corporate social responsibility, and other workplace environment issues. Readers are invited to send confidential workplace questions and receive a confidential response. In the newest blog, “Higher Ed Ethics Watch,” Dr. Mintz shares his unique perspective arising from 30-plus years in academe. Ethics in the academy takes on a new meaning these days because of attacks on free speech, designating safe zones on college campuses, whether colleges should become sanctuary campuses, and questions about the very purpose of a university education.
