Ethics for universities

In the Times Higher on October 7th is the intriuging headline:-

Guide steers campuses through moral mazes

On closer inspection, it seems that for a mere £25, universities can buy a guide to ethical dilemmas in HE, authored by vice-chancellors, industry chiefs, UUK and HEFCE folk. Stephen Schwarz (who's VC at Brunel) is one of the authors of the report and says "The whole purpose of a univeristy is ethical. We are looked up to, and we must make sure we act in a responsible way". My favourite bit in the report:-

Tony Blair has sent a message of support to the authors of the guide. In it he stresses the importance of universities and colleges in helping students to prepare for life's ethical dilemmas.

I have to confess that as I type this I feel a bit like Tom in Tom & Jerry when he puts out a particularly attractive piece of cheese as bait for Jerry and we see the aroma gently waft into Jerry's mousehole and tweak him on the nose. The Jerry to my Tom, of course, is Adam; are you there, Adam?
