The Cincinnati Ethics Center Doubles Staff

The unprecedented growth of the Greater Cincinnati Regional High School Ethics Bowl program, growing popularity of the Ethics and Dragons program, and increased demand for public engagement workshops has led The Cincinnati Ethics Center to expand its team with the addition of two new positions: Program Coordinator for Education Programs and Director of K-12 Educational Programs. 

The Program Coordinator will assist in advancing the mission of the CEC with a focus on programming for the campus and Greater Cincinnati community. Core responsibilities will include developing and executing ethics related programming for K-12 schools, organizations that serve K-12 students, UC departments/divisions, and organizations in the Greater Cincinnati Community.

The Director of K-12 will lead and expand our K-12 initiatives, championing our goal to foster moral reasoning, decision-making, dialogue, and leadership skills in K-12 age students in the Greater Cincinnati Area. The individual will be responsible for the execution of existing programs, development of new initiatives, and building lasting relationships with both schools and community organizations.  The ideal candidate will have excellent communication and reasoning skills, a keen attention to detail, and the ability to handle complex, high-level responsibilities. It is essential that this person have a deep understanding of best practices for youth education, and be able to educate and train individuals to implement some of those practices.
