Five alumni of the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program of the U.S. Department of State will deliver their lectures in the 16th Humphrey Voice Series at Claire Isabel McGill Luce Auditorium, Silliman University (SU) on June 30.
The lecture series, in coordination with SU's College of Law, is called "Catch 22: Ethical Dilemmas in a Changing Nation". This is the first leg of the University's 2017 General Education Integrative Lecture Series, a program aimed at discussing various issues involving different academic disciplines.
Atty. Nicolas B. Pichay of the Senate of the Philippines (Syracuse University, 2017-2018) will tackle "Discovering Ethics Hidden in Plain Sight", while Ms. Criselda Marie Z. Caringal of GMA 7 (Arizona State University, 2015-2016) will lecture on "Ethics in the Time of Trolls".

Molitas of the Philippine National Police (2014-2015) on "Ethics in the Police Force". Atty. Arnel Jose S. Bañas of the Senate of the Philippines (University of Washington, 2007-2008) will serve as the reactor.
The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program provides ten months of non-degree academic study and related professional experiences in the United States.
