How We Trivialize Our Cheating Ways
Thursday, October 6 • 4 p.m. • WPAC
Students, like all humans, are able to rationalize their habits of work in order to maintain their sense of good character all the while they are acting without integrity. In this dynamic presentation, Dr. Tricia Bertram Gallant uses stories of cheating as a way to invite students to face the mirror so they can see how their behaviors are perceived by others and so they can see for themselves that actions, not promises, define their characters and will create their futures.
