Carleton has an Ethics Bowl team! Ethics Bowl is a national competition where teams present and discuss complex, contemporary moral problems. The Carleton team competes in the Upper Midwest Regional Tournament, which takes place each November somewhere in or around Chicago (usually).

The Carleton Ethics Bowl team is open to anyone. To join the team, you must register for “PHIL 299: Ethics Bowl.” This two credit, pass/fail class meets once a week in fall term to prepare for the regional tournament. No previous experience is required although team members from previous years will be given priority in registering (for the sake of team continuity). 

While we work hard to prepare for the tournament, the emphasis on our team is less about competing and more about figuring out what we think about the cases and ensuring everyone has a voice in the conversation.
