Business, Journalism and Law (May 25 – June 7, 2019)

“I found it immensely valuable to think about ethics not only in the legal profession but in terms of how I as a legal practitioner may interact with business and journalism professionals in the course of my career.” 
— Miriam Marks, 2019 Law Fellow

“FASPE was a transformative experience that will be very helpful to my entrance into the legal profession.”
— Benjamin Seelig, 2019 Law Fellow

“FASPE has given me a clear perspective of how professionals at a pivotal point in history failed to recognize their responsibilities and the nature of the choices they made. Equipped with this knowledge and with a better appreciation for the human suffering that resulted from their actions, I better understand my role as a future business leader and the responsibilities that entails.”
—Keller Durkin, 2019 Business Fellow

“Thank you for this precious opportunity. It was truly transformative, and I am so thankful. From the relationships, to the knowledge gained, to the lasting memories, this is one of the best educational experiences of my entire life.”
— Austin McKinney, 2019 Business Fellow

“I feel very thankful to have participated in FASPE. It has sparked an ongoing curiosity in me regarding the topics we discussed, and left me feeling inspired and confident. I returned to my newspaper feeling like my ethical armor has been strengthened. Overall, FASPE was an unforgettable experience.”
— Vjosa Isai, 2019 Journalism Fellow

“Participating in the program gave me so much inspiration and energy as I move forward as a journalist. It's helped me feel more confident in my ethical decisions, and thus more confident as a journalist overall. Also, in the end it was just great to be around so many other people who take ethical questions seriously and are willing to deeply engage with these issues.”
— Laura Neumann, 2019 Journalism Fellow
