Opportunities in the Humanities

Earlham students are creative and inquisitive, and the CEIC is meeting them where their interests are.

Ethical Debate Club

Building on a student and faculty interest in debate, CEIC staff have connected with the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl Competition. Earlham students and coaches now meet for training each fall, and in November the EC Ethical Debate Club participates in the Central States regional competition.

As a community committed to doing good and pursuing truth, Earlham is well suited for the way ethical debate approaches current challenges across all segments of society. In this style of debate, teams analyze cases dealing with topics in personal and professional ethics. The teams critique each other’s analysis rather than defend opposing sides of the case, as in traditional debate.

The Brimley’s Compete

For several decades, The Brimley’s has been Earlham’s only entirely student-run a cappella vocal group, known for their fun-loving nature. When approached by the CEIC about preparing an audition for competition in fall 2021, they gladly accepted the challenge.

Varsity Vocals, the premiere organization for showcasing and supporting student a cappella singing, hosts annual international competitions. The Brimley’s prepared their own arrangements—as they do with all their compositions—and submitted a video audition, created by an Earlham student videographer.
