view of the shift in attitudes toward professional women in favor of an explanation that attributes the shift to 
empathic involvement. 
Our main substantive finding, then, is that the class had a positive effect on student attitudes in general and 
reflected a genuine improvement of their understanding and appreciation of members of a group initially judged to 
be “different”. Our study raises interesting questions. It deserves further work designed to use critical 
methodological improvements in the measurement of attitudes.
 Even our tentative, initial results, however, shed 
light on the possible factors that may influence a positive change in attitudes toward the others and represent an 
important step in developing interventions on ethics in the academic environment.
