FASPE is a set of innovative programs for graduate students in professional schools and early stage professionals designed to address contemporary ethical issues through a unique historical context. Fellowships provide business, journalism, law, medical, and seminary students with a 12-day trip to Germany and Poland where the actions of professionals during the Holocaust and in Nazi Germany serve as a backdrop for an intensive course of study on the current ethical challenges in their fields. FASPE invokes the power of place—the first-hand experience of visiting Auschwitz and other historic sites—to engage Fellows in applying the lessons of history to the ethical issues they face today.
Take a look at the 2016 FASPE Journalism blog with coverage and details about the 2016 Journalism trip.
