Congratulations to ‘UNF Construction Management (CM) Ethic Team members-1st' place in 2022!


The University of North Florida Construction Management (CM) students have participated in the American Institute of Constructors (AIC)  Ethics competition, a national construction ethics competition by AIC, on the 23rd of March and are competitive with seven (7) universities. As a result, the UNF CM students took 1st place in 2022.


This competition was a two-step process:

  1. Written response based on the given ethical scenario questions and
  2. 25 mins virtual oral presentation.


UNF CM AIC team members are four (4) undergrad students: Brent Akers, Gabriel Dioso, Anthony Andrade, and Genesis Ernest, team coach: Dr. Jonghoon 'John' Kim, assistant professor and industry advisor:  Jeff McPhaul, Senior Project Manager- Whiting-Turner.


Our undergrad students analyzed the problem statement based on a real scenario, including unprofessional and unethical behaviors in the construction contract process. The team was asked to write an essay and give an oral presentation of their analyses to industry judges.
