Webster Vienna - Freshmen Ethics Workshop

The Ethics Workshop, with a focus on ethical dilemmas faced in academics, also fostered community among Webster Vienna freshmen.

Webster University’s Vienna campus held its highly anticipated annual Freshmen Ethics Weekend Workshop Jan 23-24, gathering students for role play, simulations, group discussions and project work around the topic of “Dilemmas Facing the Intellectual Community.”

Throughout the weekend, students explore relevant ethical dilemmas they will face as they develop as new university students and working members of society.

Students tackle ethical issues through role play, simulation, discussions, and group project work.

Students found the workshop did that as well as helped develop skills and foster a sense of community among a diverse, multicultural group.

The Ethics Weekend helped me get to know other Webster students,” said Lele Lovodua. “And the interactions, discussions and other activities improved my speaking skills!”

Students appreciated the discussions on academic integrity, plagiarism and cheating, and Webster academic policies.

“Everything relating to the Honor Code was explained once again – what we should and shouldn’t do,” said Ivan Stoyanov. “That’s a good thing: there are a lot of people from different countries, so you see many different viewpoints on the same topic.”

“Such events create a sense of a community, a group,” said Assel Azarova. “It is an exchange of different values and opinions, which can change your beliefs and broaden your horizon.”

Now we have a better look at the academic policies of Webster,” said Jordi Cano. “It was actually fun to be part of even though it was a long weekend, because you meet a lot of new people and you make connections.”
