Dr. Katie Chiou of the De-Co Committee was recently featured in the January 2022 edition of the Society of American Archaeology's Archaeological Record for her outstanding work and leadership with the ethics bowl. The article features Dr. Chiou's volunteer work over the years in working with SAA in organizing the annual debate. The Ethics Bowl is a competitive debate based on hypothetical cases developed for teams of undergraduate and graduate students from different universities to solve ethical dilemmas faced by archaeologists in their day-to-day lives. Dr. Chiou was introduced to the Ethics Bowl as a student while attending the University of California, Berkeley where she competed on the university’s ethics team from 2009-2014. She joined SAA's Ethics Committee in 2017 and continues to serve in organizing and mentoring the annual event. The next Ethics Bowl debate will be held during the 87th Annual Meeting of the SAA, March 30 - April 3, 2022, in Chicago, Illinois. Congratulations and Thank You for your service and important work Dr. Chiou!
