HIGH POINT, N.C., March 28, 2011 ? The Rev. Dr. Hal Warlick, Dean of the Chapel and Professor of Religion and Philosophy at High Point University, will serve as visiting professor at the Yale School of Management on March 30.
In a three-hour session for a Leadership Strategies Seminar, Warlick will present ?Ethics as a Leadership Strategy.? He has written two cases for the presentation. The first is a non-profit case reviewed by some members of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. The second case is on the freedom of speech and censorship, and will feature artistic interpretations of some previously banned books in America created by visual arts students at the South Carolina Governor?s School for the Arts and Humanities. Following the presentation, the university will host a dinner for Warlick, where students will have the opportunity to ask questions and continue discussion.
?This seminar provides a wonderful opportunity to expand on the topic of business ethics, which is a course I teach here at High Point University on the undergraduate level,? Warlick says. ?At Yale, I will be working with graduate-level students, and during the session, we will discuss a more advanced version of ethical theories. ? I?m grateful to have this opportunity to share my studies at such a renowned educational institution.?
In order to attend the seminar, students must apply for admission. This year the applicant group for the spring 2011 term was larger than usual, and 17 students were accepted.
