Professor Shaun T. Schafer spent two weeks as an invited guest instructor at Misr International University, a private university in Cairo, Egypt. During his time there he taught courses, helped review senior projects, and continued working on creating a for-mal relationship between MSU Denver and MIU.
Professor Schafer was also featured on Channel NewsAsia about the threat of fake news. “Information is free and accessible to all, and people just assume that it is of value”, when a lot of it is not true. Shaun warns against recent threats to common trusted news outlets, saying it is destructive to ban a constitutional system of checks and balances.
