“A fault once denied is twice committed,” was the message written on the classroom’s board when Garden City High School students in Gene Rochler’s College Business Management class and Reid Sclafani’s College Business Law class participated in discussions led by Molloy College professor Ray Pullaro and program coordinator and teacher Jennifer Riano Goez on the topic of ethics and social responsibility. “Ethics is an integral part of who you are,” explained Goez. “Consider the fact that ethics are important on both the individual and global level, and the impact of the decisions you make on the society at-large.”
The speakers involved the students in discussions of two situations: a day care center where parents were chronically late to pick up their children and the case of Lance Armstrong’s doping and his “aggressive denial” of his involvement. Pullaro used a graph to illustrate the economic and moral cost in each case, asking students to consider the ethical factors involved and the consequences of various actions.
“Ethics and social responsibility are topics that we have focused on for many years, especially in the college level business classes,” said Rochler. “After seeing and hearing the Molloy College professors place that same emphasis in their lesson, our students more fully realized their value and importance in the today’s business world.”

You hear the horn sound multiple times a day, around the clock, but did you ever wonder what happens during the critical moments after a distress call is made to the firehouse? Who are the volunteers who are stopped in their tracks at the sound of that horn and dash off to help a neighbor in need? You’d be surprised to learn that it could be the gentleman you see walking his dog after work in the evenings, the woman you see standing at the bus stop with her children every morning, or even the young man you used to see playing with his friends in front of your house.
