Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is pleased to announce that more than 50 universities, institutes, and other organizations are joining it this month in celebrating the importance of ethics education as part of its second annual Global Ethics Day on October 16, 2015.

The organizations, which include military academies, public universities, Ivy League institutions, and many others, hail from five continents?from Tokyo, Japan to Bueno Aires, Argentina to Pretoria, South Africa to Warsaw, Poland.

In accordance with Carnegie Council's hope for a teach-in style approach, each institution will be engaging in an activity that is most appropriate for its own community. Activities include lectures, symposiums, film screenings, and social media campaigns (hashtag #globalethicsday2015).
