There’s a lot of talking going on at the Ethics Center this year. Two students are doing a podcast on the ethics of dating at SCU. One fellow is investigating gender issues in the workplace (could there be a more timely topic?), and another is looking at sports ethics in the Jesuit tradition. Our interns are coming back from their placements in Silicon Valley businesses and hospitals with so much to share about the ethical issues they encounter.
As students discuss their experiences with their peers, they model the kind of civil discourse Santa Clara University promotes. They also engage in vocational discernment and find their own ways of using dialogue to become leaders in their chosen fields.
"Receiving the Hackworth Fellowship in Applied Ethics has allowed me to reflect on my time here at Santa Clara University. As a first generation college student, I have found that resiliency and perseverance are two key components to my path towards achieving an education. Both of my parents had found a passage blossoming with opportunity, and thus they decided to take that risk. Hearing the stories about my family's struggles in the rural regions of Ethiopia fueled my passion towards acquiring an education, and impacting the people around me. Santa Clara University has contributed to the cultivation of my character. It has helped me acquire the resources I need to further develop and foster my values and goals in life. The Hackworth Fellowship has allowed me to construct a platform of awareness concerning the struggles of low-income first generation college students. As a fellow, I have discovered the true value in being true to myself. Such a reflection has allowed me to understand that my life's purpose is closely tied to the Jesuit philosophy of being conscious, compassionate and competent individuals for others."
--Amanuel Bizuneh, Class of 2018, Hackworth Fellow
