One of the things that makes us tick is our commitment to community. You can feel it on campus when you greet a friendly face, or wait an extra moment to hold the door for someone who is a little too far away. It's what makes this place special; it's what makes us Anselmian.

Secret Agents of the Underground Railroad is a revealing scientific exploration of how a Niagara Falls hotel, The Cataract House, became the focal point for a 19th century North American Black Resistance movement. Host Anthony Morgan meets a team of archaeologists who are working to recover parts of the hotel's foundation. In doing so, they unearth stories about how the hotel's head waiter, John Morrison, and his seemingly innocuous wait staff covertly orchestrated Freedom Seekers' escapes to freedom. What’s true of every archaeological dig is that below the surface, there is always more than meets the eye; and the dig at the once-renowned Cataract House is no exception
Following the screening, an engaging panel Q&A, moderated by Professor Mary Kate Donais will feature key members of the documentary team.
Saladin Allah, Director of Community Engagement at the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center

Please join the Center for Ethics in Society on October 3rd, as Dr. Annabel Beerel examines the role of courage in both institutional and personal life.
We begin with a discussion of the escalation of corporate crime over the past five years, the scale of employee involvement and the consequences to both individuals and society. This follows with an exploration into how courage is commonly understood, and why so many people were and are complicit in blatantly unethical behavior. What inhibits or detracts them from taking the courageous path of not engaging in ethical misdemeanors and/or whistleblowing? Through discussions and case studies we examine why we struggle to be courageous and wherein lie the major inhibitors.
The event will conclude with a discourse on a normative framework for defining courage and with examples of how we can strengthen our own capacities for courage.
We invite you to participate in this time of courageous self-reflection. (Please note, dinner is included with this event.)
