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.

  • Call for Abstracts: Eleventh Symposium on Engineering and Liberal Education

    PostedFriday, February 16, 2018 AT 3:29 PM

    Eleventh Symposium on Engineering and Liberal Education
    June 1-2, 2018
    Union College, Schenectady, NY

    Abstract submissions are invited for the Eleventh Symposium on Engineering and Liberal Education, which will be held at Union College in Schenectady, New York, on June 1-2, 2018.

    PostedTuesday, January 30, 2018 AT 12:51 PM

    The following statement was released by the Presidents of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on January 16, 2018:

    The highest standards of scientific integrity, transparency, and accountability are critical to maintaining public confidence in our nation’s research enterprise and in the wise use of the public investment in research. The public expects policymakers and agencies to base those investments on independent advice and assessment from unbiased experts without political interference. For these reasons, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine view any political review of scientific proposals as inappropriate, as it gives the appearance of political interference in science. At the same time, we recognize the prerogative of federal agencies to align funding programs with their mission priorities in their calls for proposals and in their requests that reviewers assess the relevance of proposals to agency priorities as one of ...
