OEC Community

The OEC Community contains individuals who wish to contribute to the goals of the OEC.  Many provide guidance, review submissions, and/or contribute resources for the OEC (or related activities of the Center for Engineering Ethics and Society). They have expertise or interest in ethical issues involving science and engineering and in promoting learning and understanding of responsible research and practice in engineering and science. The OEC staff may call on community members to review and contribute to teaching notes, cases, commentaries, and other content and educational materials.

Persons wishing to join the OEC community may sign up here.  Those who wish to serve on a Content Editorial Board should send a biographical sketch and request to onlineethics@nae.edu. The requests should indicate why you wish to serve and how you believe you can make a contribution to the OEC.
