The Department of Philosophy celebrated the achievements of our undergraduate and graduate students and our faculty at our annual Awards Reception on March 31, 2019. Our Philosophy community continued its annual tradition of honoring our award winners by having faculty share personal anecdotes from the classroom and office hours about each of the recipients to the delight of family and friends.

We are proud of the achievements of our students and faculty and look forward to seeing what they accomplish in the future.
