Study of Student Attitudes Toward Immigration
Thursday, May. 24, 2012
Brittany Adams, SCU '12, a Hackworth Fellow at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics reports at an Ethics at Noon presentation May 30 on the results of her year-long study of SCU undergraduate students' assumptions about justice and fairness with regard to undocumented immigration. The talk will be held from 12-1 p.m., in the Wiegand Room of the Santa Clara University Arts & Sciences Building.
Adams' study combined qualitative research methods with ethical analysis. It sought to understand students' ethical assumptions with regard to such issues such as amnesty; the border fence; and the DREAM Act. The study also includes a set of recommendations for how Jesuit universities might more fruitfully address the moral issue of undocumented immigration.
Adams is a philosophy and religious studies double major.
