CEHV Announces Inaugural Cohort of Civil Discourse Fellows
The Center for Ethics and Human Values is happy to announce our inaugural cohort of Civil Discourse Fellows.
CEHV has developed a campus-wide Civil Discourse Initiative, launching this semester, with the aim of promoting constructive and respectful engagement across lines of political disagreement. As part of this new initiative, we have selected eight undergraduate students as our first cohort of CEHV Civil Discourse Fellows.
Following a series of training sessions, the Fellows will serve as moderators for two public events in our 2021-22 COMPAS Program that feature guest speakers who hold opposing views on a controversial political issue: Should Open Societies Have Open Borders? (Friday, April 1) and Can Markets Be Immoral? (Friday, April 8). Together, the Fellows will also plan two further events for autumn 2022 on topics of their choosing, to continue the series of student-moderated discussions.
