CSUN Invites Public to Tackle Ethics
(NORTHRIDGE, Calif., Nov. 3, 2003) - The public is invited to join New York Times Magazine columnist Randy Cohen in a discussion about ethics, Tuesday Nov. 11, from 12-1 p.m. at Cal State Northridge's Performing Arts Center.
with Columnist Randy Cohen
In a forum entitled, "The Good, the Bad, and the Confused," Cohen will be addressing personal and institutional behavior and dilemmas, both big and small.
"The goal of the forum is to help people think about the choices they make in their interactions with others," said the university counselor Carolyn Okazaki. "We all have choices. If each of us gave some thought to these issues and choices, perhaps we as a society would not have the multitude of ethical lapses that we do at present."
Cohen, an Emmy award-winner, writes "The Ethicist" for the New York Times Magazine, syndicated throughout the United States and Canada as "Everyday Ethics." He has recently published, "The Good, The Bad and the Difference," a book based on his column, and he contributes to the National Public Radio's "Weekend All Things Considered."
Cohen has a bachelor's degree from the State University of New York at Albany and a master's of music composition from the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles. He has published essays for the New Yorker and the Atlantic. He has also worked with David Letterman and Rosie O'Donnell.
CSUN is located at 18111 Nordhoff Street in Northridge. The Performing Arts Center, in the university's student union, is located near the center of campus off Lindley Avenue.
