After a COVID hiatus, Florida Gulf Coast University’s Newton Ethical Leadership Initiative (NELI) once again hosted its annual FGCU Rist Family Foundation High School Ethics Competition, this time as an individual event. Students were asked to respond to a real-life event in which an auditor finds that the CEO and employees of a mental health organization are “Doing Bad to Do Good.” They are knowingly requesting reimbursement for services they are not delivering, but they are providing other services they deem critical for their clients, but just aren’t reimbursable in the way the government policy is written. Students have to decide the right thing to do and then find strategies for overcoming the reasons and rationalizations that people are likely to present as roadblocks to doing the right thing.
