After twenty-one years with the Department of Philosophy and thirty-eight years at the University of Washington, our beloved administrator Beverly Wessel is retiring. On March 15, 2019 we celebrated Bev’s incredible contributions with a reception where colleagues past and present shared stories of Bev, and toasted her upcoming retirement. Bev has kept the department running like a well-oiled machine since 1997 -- no easy task! Prior to joining philosophy, Bev was the administrator for what is now Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies – the members of which have only recently forgiven Philosophy for luring her away. Bev's contributions to the department are too many to number and our whole community will miss her! We wish her all the best in her well-deserved retirement! We look forward to hearing many tales and seeing photos from her travels.
