Meet the Citizen Scholars: Sabrina Stoffels

stoffels.jpgSabrina Stoffels is a senior Human Relations major and Spanish minor at the University of Texas at Austin. She became particularly interested in media ethics after taking Dr. Scott Stroud’s Communication Ethics course at UT Austin. Sabrina looks forward to the opportunity provided by the Citizen Scholar internship to conduct research and write useful case studies on important topics in media ethics. She is especially interested in the intersections among communication, human rights, social justice, and mental health awareness. When she’s not studying for her courses, Sabrina serves as the Social Media Publicity Officer for “Campus Events + Entertainment” and is working toward her certification as a conflict mediator. She also enjoys going to theater, dance, and comedy performances around Austin.

Media Ethics Initiative Citizen Scholars are part of the Intellectual Entrepreneurship Pre-Graduate School Internship program at the University of Texas at Austin. This internship is open to students in all UT colleges, schools, and departments. Citizen Scholars earn credits and valuable experience by working with the Media Ethics Initiative to promote reflection on media ethics among students and faculty at the University of Texas at Austin. They gain valuable experience by assisting the organizing and promotion of Media Ethics Initiative events, as well as by researching and writing case studies in media ethics. Interested UT Austin students can sign up for a 1, 2, or 3 credit internship for the fall or spring semester.
