Sex Discrimination at Saint Ambrose University: The Moral and Legal Consequences of Unethical Behavior
Martin, Jennifer; Beese, Jane A.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v18 n3 p238-252 Sep 2015
This case was developed for use in a learning-centered course with a focus on administrative leadership and ethical behavior. This case describes the experience of a new faculty member at Saint Ambrose University, as she discovers a wide range of ethical and management problems in her department. The case unfolds as we track her efforts to deal with these issues. Intertwined throughout the case are challenges pertaining to the dean's responsibilities, particularly in the area of management oversight. Students must analyze the data, identify the inconsistencies in ethical behavior, and identify the potential moral and legal consequences.
