Newsletter Summer 2014 Awards Reception


The Department of Philosophy held its first Awards Reception on the evening of June 12, 2014, to celebrate and honor all the award recipients. The evening was a wonderful opportunity for faculty members to present their personal experiences in the classroom with each award winner to the many family and friends in the audience.

The first Kenneth Clatterbaugh Scholarship was awarded, as well as, many Friends of Philosophy Awards which are made possible by donations to the Friends of Philosophy and The Kenneth Clatterbaugh Scholarship Funds. Thank you to our many alumni and friends who make it possible for us to support our undergraduate and graduate students and faculty in this way. Please consider making a gift to the Department to allow us to continue this invaluable support here.
