The Honor Series - Part 6 - Honor, Ethics, and Integrity - CAPT Herbert, USN (ret.) was a Distinguished Military Professor of Ethics, and the NE203 Course Director (Ethics and Moral Reasoning for the Naval Leader). We discuss, can a person be an ethical person and be honorable at the same time? How does integrity fit in with ethical behavior and being honorable? We ask, is there honor among thieves?
The Honor Series - Part 4 - Remediation and Coaching - CAPT Rick Rubel, USN, (ret.) was the officer tasked to develop the Honor Remediation Process at the Naval Academy. In this episode, we discuss the honor remediation program and processes. Why do we have remediation, and how does this fit the moral development program for Midshipmen? What are the keys to success and factors of failure? Finally, we discuss how do we prevent this from becoming a "second chance" program? He also discusses the newest program involving mentorship, with the midshipmen driven effort taking a proactive approach to developing honorable character habits. CAPT Rubel has also been a Distinguished Military Professor of Ethics and has served as the Course Director of the Core Ethics Course for 17 years.
