Media, Faculty Join Forces to Discuss Ethics


Tom Hutton
The daily ethical challenges faced by managers of traditional and social media outlets will be the subject of this year's summit.

"Lauren Brengarth, assistant professor, Department of Communication, will lead a summit to bring academic experts and working journalists together to share the challenges faced in newsrooms across America. Brengarth is a Daniels Fund Ethics fellow and the event is sponsored by the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative in the College of Business. 

"Anyone who attends this event will be challenged," Brengarth said. "Ultimately, media management affects everybody. The ethical decisions that media make - or chose not to make - affects the content we consume and the way we form opinions about the world around us. We're going to hear some interesting stories to expand our learning experience."
