Panel to Discuss Media Ethics During Nov. 12 Event

RELEASED: Nov. 4, 2008

EAU CLAIRE — The Student Senate and the Commission of the Status of Women at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will sponsor a two-hour panel discussion titled, "Yes, You Can Say It, But Should You?: The Impact of the Media Ethics on Campus and Community Climate."

The discussion will begin at 5 p.m. Nov. 12 in the Presidents Room of Davies Center.

The main topic the panel will discuss is how media ethics impact equity, diversity and inclusiveness at UW-Eau Claire and in the Eau Claire community — a larger issue stemming from an article published in a university-funded publication during the spring 2008 semester. The issue of EDI relates to the chancellor's Centennial Plan.

Debating the issue will be Dr. David Gordon, professor emeritus of communication and journalism and media ethics expert; Traci Thomas-Card, lecturer of English and co-founder of the Women and Gender Equity Center; senior Phil Kolas, a philosophy/creative writing student and director of development for The Flip Side, an alternative student publication; Trevor Kupfer, special projects editor for VolumeOne; senior Theresa Schneider, an English/Spanish major and editor-in-chief for The Spectator; and senior Jessica Wiens, a mass communication and women's studies student.

Dr. Beth Hellwig, vice chancellor for student affairs and dean of students, will moderate the panel, which will feature one hour of pre-established questions and one hour of questions from the audience.

This event is free and open to the public.
