  • Instituting Sound Ethical Practices as a Foundation for Good Governance

    • Authors: Ogechukwu Marlyn Agim
      Abstract: This paper seeks to create a better understanding of sound ethical practices in the public and non-profit sector, highlighting these sectors and the issue areas, presenting work and practices that have been executed in the past, and exploring the implications that sound ethical principles have as a foundation for good governance for public servants, non-profit organization employees and even private employees.Because governance is a term that spreads across all fields, several applications of sound ethical practices will be introduced and discussed in depth in this paper. An extensive study on best practices in the USA and Nigeria will be done in order to evaluate the progress (or the lack thereof) in the established systems. This will be done through the review of works extensively produced in search of solutions to the challenges presented by changing ethical realities.

  • Two-pronged Approach to Imbedding Values in Organizations

    • Authors: Evans Lusuli
      Abstract: The purpose for this paper is to argue that in order to successfully implement values and develop an ethically conscious or morally intelligent organizations, a two-pronged strategy must be adopted. A two-pronged strategy is an approach that seeks to imbed ethical values at both the organizational level – which, in this case includes the organization’s leadership, and empowering employees at the individual level to do what Mary Gentile (2010) describes in her book, as giving voice to values. Empowering employees to speak their minds when they know what is right is an avenue that enables employees to imbed ethical values into an organization regardless of what their status and position in the organization is. This, as will be explained in the paper, does not just mean that employees are only allowed and encouraged to speak their minds when they witness unethical, illegal and immoral behavior, it also means and assumes that there is such thing as ethical, principled and values-driven employees who want to do what is right and it is important that these principled and ethically conscious employees are equipped with the skills and the knowledge to know how to respond when confronted with the common rationalizations for unethical behavior. The paper is therefore divided into three major sections.

  • Election Violence in Kenya

    • Authors: Judith Kimani
      Abstract: This paper was written to investigate the different reasons that have in the past led to election violence in Kenya. Kenya has for the past 25 years experienced violence before, during and after an election which has led to loss of lives, damage of property, loss of revenue on a personal or national level and violation of human rights on Kenyans. The paper highlights the ethical issues that can be attributed to election violence in Kenya and what can be done to change these problems. The article identified political tribalism as the main reason that has fueled election violence in Kenya, how it came about and how Kenyans have continued to exacerbate the problem through their actions not just during the election period, but also before and after the election. It offers insight on possible measures that can be done to combat election violence in Kenya and the task that those in the government, the opposition, and the ordinary Kenyan citizen would need to embark on to ensure that this phenomenon does not continue to occur in the future. This paper highlights the unprecedented events that occurred after the August 2017 elections, and it offers an insight into an issue that was unfolding at the time the paper was being written.

  • A Look at Minimizing Student Loan Debt, While Maximizing Advanced
           Educational Opportunities

    • Authors: Karla Bradford
      Abstract: Poverty is a reality for many who obtain a degree of higher education and enter the workforce immediately after graduation. Funding an education for many may lead to student loan debt that is often virtually impossible to repay. This often leads many to believe that the debt incurred from obtaining a degree of higher education may not be worth the gain. The purpose of this paper is explore several articles that report on higher education as it relates to poverty, student loan debt, and salary pay scales for degrees and professional trade certifications. While investigating those related themes, this paper will analyze and explore different educational routes that lead to more positive outcomes of self-sustainability and success. The desire to identifying these routes is to help decrease or even eliminate the chances of living in poverty by following a route that is more in demand and offers a higher salary pay scale. This paper will look at two different routes (higher education and/or professional certifications) that have a greater chance of ensuring a lifetime of self-sustainability and success. This paper will compare and contrast student loan debt and costs associated with obtaining a professional certification.

  • Technology, Power, and Leadership: Recommendations for Preserving Faculty
           Autonomy in the 21st Century

    • Authors: Leslie Pourreau
      Abstract: Today’s institutions of higher education dedicate significant time and effort to outfitting facilities with the latest technology equipment and packages and to providing faculty with training and support. Conversely, literature on technology implementation in higher educational settings typically focuses on procedures and timelines and makes little mention of how faculty perceive technology as a challenge or threat to their autonomy and professional identity. This literature review uses the terms “power”, “empowerment” and “technology” according to Foucault, Kanter, Rowlands, and others as the lens to examine connections between technology and faculty’s real or perceived loss of identity and autonomy. Instructional technology design experts have called for a return to the use of seminal learning theories to help bridge the learning gap for technology users. Findings in the literature drive the recommendation for using sociological and psychological Constructivist factors as the next step in identifying ways to implement technology that contribute to empowering 21st century higher education faculty and protecting their autonomy.

  • Mergers: What Ethical Leaders Can Do To Help Ensure Success

    • Authors: Barbie Pike
      Abstract: AbstractThis paper looks at several research articles which include discussions on the success and failures of mergers. Mergers continue to rise in number even though there is a lack of evidence showing positive results. Though failure rates for mergers are high, there is a large amount of research showing what organizations and more specifically leaders can do to ensure the success of mergers. This paper examines things that ethical leaders can do to positively impact the introduction, transition, and outcome of mergers when considering culture, the size of the organization, diversity, conflict, change, role modeling, team building, communication, planning and preparation, corporate reputation, and demographics. These findings provide implications for how organizations can enhance merger success rates.Keywords: ethics, leaders, mergers, organizations, culture

  • Politics and Ethics

    • Authors: Jerryl W. Morris
      Abstract: Politics and Ethics seem to be strange bedfellows or in most cases mutually exclusive. The question is why should they be' This paper tries to address the issue by looking at the effects of negative campaigning and the influence of a political strategist. It ask the question: Does negative campaigning adversely or positively affect the electorate' Seven past elections and their strategies are examined, to see the effects of negative campaigning on the electorate and the election oncomes. The research on negative and positive campaigning is at best inconclusive, as it relates to effects on the electorate. There are no cold hard facts to support whether negative campaigning motivates voters to turn out to vote nor demotivates others to the point, they stay home and do not vote. The results of negative campaigning are usually interpreted differently, depending on whether you are the victor or the loser in an election. There are no established boundaries nor agreement on what constitutes ethical campaigning or ethical behavior, but this paper suggests eight common sense guidelines to promote ethical behaviors and strategies, when campaigning for political office.

  • At What Cost' The Ethics of Student Debt

    • Authors: Kevin D. Gecowets
      Abstract: This paper summarizes recent research into the cost of higher education, and specifically the effects of growing student debt loads. It explores the utility of debt related to access to degree programs, entry into the job market, and economic impact in later life. It is not an economic analysis of higher education financing, but a consideration of the costs and benefits of education financing today. The central ethical consideration of “who benefits” applied to the current state of play in higher education financing leads to the questions: With constantly rising debt loads for individual students and the general population, is higher education still worth it' What are some of the issues that school debt creates and what impact do they have on diverse student and graduate populations' Finally, what are some potential areas for further research that can positively affect the cost vs. benefit of higher education for students and the state, while respecting prevailing social, economic, and political realities' The research shows while going into debt for a college degree is still “worth it” for the average student, as debt rises the payback of obtaining a degree is delayed. Debt loads have a negative disparate effect on vulnerable populations and a negative impact to the states as debt load drives some students away from careers that could benefit populations. Finally, there is a need for improved financial literacy and an opportunity to research and implement less costly financing options for students pursuing higher education.
