The Muslim Student-Anchor: Is Traditional Religious Dress Appropriate?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

College and university campuses are dedicated to diversity, but what are the faculty responsibilities when a student who wears traditional religious clothing such as a Muslim hijab or a Jewish yarmulke aces an audition for a student TV newscast? What if the station airing the newscast refuses to accept the student? Should there be a frank discussion with the student regarding realistic job prospects? What are the EEOC liabilities? As a more diverse student base enters communication programs, these delicate issues are bound to arise. Moderator: Peter Casella, University of North Florida
Panelists: Mark Lodato, Arizona State University
Ron Comings, KLAS-TV
Dalia Ashmawi, American University of Cairo
David Deeley, University of North Florida
