Eight generations of student Web developers

They are doctors and engineers, academics and businesspeople, teachers and videographers—but they all still remember their days at the Ethics Center. Student alumni shared their doings since graduation and introduced us to their families at a gathering on campus this month.

The Center has been employing students as fellows, interns, and office workers since its early days in the 1980s. Just ask Robert Philbrook, now a deputy district attorney in Santa Clara County, but at one time the Center’s receptionist. Also on hand at the reunion were seven of the Center’s former student Web developers: Karthik Panyala, Praneet Jain, James Latief, Lisa Taft, Antony Setiawan, Sai Kishore, and Deepak Venugopal. 

We also hosted a number of former student interns and fellows, including former Environmental Ethics Fellow Sophie Asmar, former Engineering Ethics Fellows Jocelyn Tan and Clare Bartlett, and former Hackworth Fellow Meghan Skarzynski.

Some alumni live too far away to come back to campus, but took the time to write and catch us up on their lives. We learned, for example, that a large fraction of our former health care ethics interns stayed in the medical field for their careers, becoming nurses, pediatricians, researchers, veterinarians, and EMTs. Other interns and fellows have served in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, received Fulbright and Rhodes fellowships, and are pursuing graduate work at universities from Harvard to Arizona State to Ohio State.
