We are looking for contributors to write 2000 to 2500 word case studies for a Case Book to be published by Broadview Press.

The goal for the book is to provide students with detailed case studies that explore real life ethical issues that arise in business. We have included below a list of suggested case studies and links. We are also open to proposals on similar topics.

The deadline for submission is December 1, 2017.

If you are interested in writing a case study for the new edition, please send a copy of your CV and a writing sample along with the case studies you would like to write to asager@pdx.edu.
