Dealing with Ethical Dilemmas on Campus. Survival Skills for Scholars, Volume 14.
Whicker, Marcia Lynn; Kronenfeld, Jennie Jacobs
This book is about colleagues in colleges and universities who sometimes are unethical. It is about episodes that people in universities and colleges prefer not to talk about except in whispers, if at all--clashes over ethics and the dilemmas created by unethical colleagues in research and teaching. The book was written for those members of academia who are struggling with how to address the wrongdoing they wish they had not seen but now cannot easily ignore. Part 1 is titled "When Ethics, Politics, and the Law Collide" and contains two chapters: "Why You Should Care about Ethical Dilemmas" and "The Overlap of Ethics, University Politics, and the Law." Part 2, "What Are Ethical Violations?," contains four chapters: "Faking, Lying, and Taking Credit"; "Fudging Research and Related Scholarly Sins"; "Sexual Harassment: Lust, Confusion, and Abuse"; and "Dealing with Fuzzy Ethical Issues." The final part, "How To Stop Ethical Violations," includes "Choosing a Strategy for Coping with Unethical Colleagues" and "When Informal Strategies Do Not Work.""Living Happily and Ethically Ever After" concludes the book. (Contains 29 references and a list of 31 additional readings.) (JDD)
