Principle in Practice

The Matador Ethics Video Challenge (MEVC) has been held since Fall 2009 to showcase students' creativity and video talents, and to further the campus conversation on ethics. Each Challenge features one of the principles in the Statement of Ethical Principles, and is between 30 and 45 seconds long.

In Fall 2011, the theme was Public Accountability, and students submitted more than 30 videos. Past prizes have included JumboTron screenings of winning videos at TTU football games, luncheons with Provost Smith, and meet-and-greet sessions with basketball coaches Kristy Curry.

Here are some of the best student-submitted videos on Public Accountability from Fall 2011.

"Basic Building Blocks" by Russell Putnam, 1st place

"Public Accoutability" by Daniel Carrasco, Chase Leftwich, Daniel Clement, and Gable Sprague, 2nd place
