Study Trip for Professionals

FASPE’s Study Trip for Professionals is a week-long intensive travel and study program that takes place in Berlin, Krakow and Auschwitz. The program is designed for established professionals and leaders in their communities to share with them the experience of the FASPE fellows. Guided by FASPE’s mission and the format of its fellowships, attendees examine the precedent of professional behavior in Germany and elsewhere from 1933-1945 as a means to understand the significance and urgency of professional ethics today.

The Study Trip is an abbreviated version of the program attended by FASPE fellows. While shorter and less rigorous, it retains the basic framework and purpose of the fellowships. Attendees stay in iconic hotels in the respective cities, visit the same sites as FASPE fellows and attend representative sessions, engaging in open discussions about contemporary ethics in the professions. Trips are organized with a limited number of participants to ensure effectiveness, and they are led by FASPE faculty, composed of leading historians and ethicists in the professions. The program serves as an opportunity to address standards of leadership and professional integrity within a unique historic context.

The next Study Trip for Professionals will take place from Saturday, October 6 through Sunday, October 14, 2018.
