Summary
Do students who take university-level ethics classes behave any differently as a result of their coursework?  The issue is difficult to study, both because of the difficulty of randomly assigning some students to study ethics and others not to do so and because real-world moral behavior is difficult to measure.  Dr. Schwitzgebel will report on one study in which exposure to classroom instruction on the ethics of eating meat appeared to substantially influence students' dining choices on campus in the following weeks, as measured by students' dining receipts with their identifying information removed.
