For over two decades the Jon C. Dalton Institute on College Student Values at Florida State University has focused on issues related to values, ethics, and character in college student development. Thanks to a generous gift from the John Templeton Foundation, the 23rd annual Dalton Institute will continue this tradition by examining how social media is influencing character development in college and the role of higher education in encouraging the virtues of authenticity and humility in an age of self-promotion.
The 2013 Dalton Institute examined higher education’s role in helping students to navigate an increasingly digital college environment. The Institute program will review what leading colleges are doing to engage students in ethical reflection and explore current issues and developments related to the impact of social media on college student identity development and moral commitment.
