What do you think is the role of “mysticism” or a more spiritual approach when considering environmental issues? Do you think these elements are useful when formulating a theoretical approach to the issues confronting the environment? Can you explain why the environmental movement escalated in the 1960s—coinciding, by the way, with other cultural awakenings? Define “environmental ethics; what role do ethics play in environmental activism? Or do you think that a rigorous, scientific, fact-based approach is the only truly appropriate way to proceed?

Research this topic further and support your arguments with the results of that research.

The Texas Legislature passed a law requiring public colleges and universities in Texas to allow for licensed concealed carry of handguns on campus. The implementation of the law is occurring in two phases. Campus carry began for public universities on August 1st of 2016 and it began on community college campuses on August 1st of 2017,
<
This measure was popular when it was debated and it was supported by a majority of Texans. However, the measure was opposed by a majority of college students and faculty. That opposition continues as colleges implement campus carry and it seems prudent to revisit this issue.
<
Should campus carry be allowed in Texas? Research this topic further and support your arguments with the results of that research. I have included an article below to provide a highlight of some of the issues present in this debate, but this is not an exhaustive accounting. (While interesting, I would prefer that you NOT debate whether or not class or office hours should be held in bars to bypass campus carry)

How has it changed?

Overview
<
You spent the last nine weeks learning about various aspects of an organization, its business functioning and the process of its strategic shift from a profit-only model to a triple bottom line model.
<
<
In the course, you learned to:
<
<
Determine the impact of proposed strategic decisions across departments
<
Assess current performance of an organization through analysis of financial statements
<
Make ethically informed decisions based on awareness of legal and organizational parameters
<
Now, it’s time to reflect on what you’ve learned.
<
<
Prompt
<
To complete this assignment:
<
<
Identify three key topics from the course that you want to explore further. For example:
<
How do various functional areas or departments individually and collectively contribute to the CSR outlook of a company?
<
How can analyzing financial statements of a company help reveal its commitment toward CSR?
<
How can a company become a frontrunner in making ethical choices while staying within legal restrictions?
<
Apply the chosen three topics to re-evaluate the company you chose in Module One (you can consult the list of companies).
<
Your re-evaluation should address one of the following considerations:
<
Related to the topic, what was your first impression of the company you chose? What is your current impression of the company? How has it changed? Explain your reasoning.
<
What drives the direction for the company in its sustainability efforts?
<
What are the key features of the CSR efforts of the company?
<
Do you believe the company has a sustainable approach to the triple bottom line?
