AbstractThis is one of a series of nine scenarios developed by Michael Loui and C. K. Gunsalus, which asks students to act out a case study looking at the ethical issues raised in professional relationships. This file, in pdf format, includes instructions for use and discussion guidelines, general principles that apply professional relationships and collaboration, a summary, resources, and handouts to be given to various participants. The case study focuses on a conversation between the head of a department and a graduate student who is uncomfortable working with one of the star faculty in the department, and has noticed a number of small discrepancies in how this faculty member is reporting the number of personnel working on one of his grant-funded research projects.
