Students Meet Austrian Filmmaker

Erwin Wagenhofer, one of Austria’s leading documentary film-makers, gave a stimulating talk to Webster students and faculty in Vienna’s Burg Cinema on Friday 14th February after a showing of his latest film alphabet. The documentary, which takes a critical worldwide look at educational systems based on competitiveness and economic needs rather than individual creativity, is particularly relevant to Webster’s 2013-14 Year of International Human Rights theme - the rights of people with so-called disabilities.

Ethics is a core part of the Freshman Seminar and aims to foster ethical reasoning skills. For the Ethics final project, faculty members, Dr. Gupta and Mag. Ferris, created an opportunity for students to investigate the ethical dilemmas and concerns present right here in Vienna. Students were asked to form project teams and choose an ethically controversial topic.

Webster Students raise 700 euro for Kenyan Elementary School

Students at the Vienna campus held a fund-raising social event in September 2013. They succeeded in raising 700 euros – congratulations! The money will go towards supporting an elementary school in western Kenya. The money will most likely be spent on much-needed school books, desks, and chairs for the elementary students. The school is one of three supported by the Waluka project, a charity run by adjunct faculty member Giles Pope.
