    Promoting vs. Enforcing Ethics o James graduated from college two years ago. Since then he has been employed by Brian & Associates, a small civil engineering firm. He has been assigned to design schools, overhead walkways between buildings, and other projects. For some time he has been concerned that he may not have the experience required for such assignments, and he has conveyed this concern to his employer, Charles Brian. Charles replied that he always checks James' work and has found it satisfactory.

    Promoting Ethics (cont’d) o Later James learns that in fact Charles does not always check his work, but places his seal on it and sends the designs to his clients. He further learns that Charles places his seal on many designs that he has not checked and even allows other engineers to use his seal and forge his signature.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
