"The student conference was a truly unique and thought-provoking event; it was amazing to hear and discuss extremely high-levels of research from numerous disciplines and schools across the country, and to have the chance to network a bit with such intelligent and capable peers," said Marrocco. "I strongly encourage any student to apply!"

Other presentations touched on various ethical issues, including climate change, state terrorism, U.S. democracy, trade disputes, gender equality, poverty reduction, immigration, student activism, and humanitarian policy. The panel of judges included scholars from Hunter College and Carnegie Council. The presentations were judged on their originality, persuasiveness, logical coherence, and relevance to ethics.

Carnegie Council would like to thank all those who took part.
