Wharton has a responsibility and social values requirement for all of its undergraduate and MBA students.
For incoming and future undergrads, the requirement is either Ethics and Social Responsibility or Law and Social Values. MBAs take either Responsibility in Global Management or Responsibility in Business.

@teioh When you publish, find out your publisher's rules about sharing your work online. Many academic publishers allow authors to post accepted manuscripts on a personal website (but not published versions).
If your publisher allows you to post your work on your website in any form, do it. This will make it easier for other academics to read your work, especially if it is published in an edited volume or in a new journal. This will also enable people outside academia to read your work.
@teioh Creating a personal website is a good idea!
The front page of your website should present a concise description of your work.
If you have published, include links to your publications. Consider adding short descriptions of each.
If you are on the job market, post whatever dossier materials can be shared publicly (e.g., in my field, writing samples, research and teaching statements). This makes it easier for hiring committee members to discuss your dossier.
@Azure By "prison," I mean involuntary confinement that
physically separates people from the rest of society.
It's an interesting and difficult question whether other restrictions on movement, such as house arrest and the use of ankle monitors, raise the same ethical concerns as prison.
1) Ethical limits on law enforcement. Should all good laws be enforced? Should all important criminal laws be enforced with prison?
2) Economic civil disobedience and the ethics of obeying the law. When, if ever, is it OK to treat fines as a cost of doing business?
3) Transactional justice. Consent is not always enough to make an economic transaction ethical. What else is needed?
