Price, Sandra J.
New Directions for Institutional Research, No. 73 (Ethics and Standards in Institutional Research); v14 n1 p47-55 Spr 1992
By identifying and weighing the effects of an act on each constituency, a matrix based on John Stuart Mill's theories of utilitarianism illuminates and helps resolve complex ethical dilemmas. Application of the approach is illustrated with a simulated case study concerning the issue of reputation in a small private college. (Author/MSE)
