Over the course of a two-day weekend, first-year students were immersed in the challenging world of ethics.

Guided by skilled Webster faculty members, students had the opportunity to explore a number of ethical and moral dilemmas through simulations, role-plays and group discussions. The objective of this workshop was to put them in real-life situations, emulating the challenges that they will face as they develop from university students to working members of society.

This Ethics Workshop was developed in order to give new Webster students the opportunity to engage with one another and to reflect on the ethical issues that are relevant in the 21st century.

As the workshop progressed, students were broken up into groups where they discussed such current themes as human rights, food ethics and religious morality. The ensuing class meetings provided space for vibrant and opinionated debates where each student could defend opinions in front of the class.

Webster Vienna takes pride in being an American university with a global vision. With more than a dozen nationalities represented, this freshman class embodies Webster’s international philosophy. During this workshop, Webster Vienna students were confronted with a variety of voices, opinions and life experiences that have challenged their own personal set of values. Working with people from other cultures and with a different background has challenged these first-year students and welcomed them to the thriving community of Webster Universities worldwide.
