Submitted by Britta M. Anson on

We are extraordinarily proud to announce that philosophy doctoral candidate Paul Tubig has been awarded the 2020 Graduate School Medal! This medal is given to recognize a doctoral candidate whose academic expertise and social awareness are integrated in a way that demonstrates an exemplary commitment to the University and its larger community. From teaching at the Washington Corrections Center for Women, to starting a first-of-its-kind Ethics Bowl for his incarcerated students, to developing an ethics dialogue tool for neuroscientists, to writing a dissertation related to disability rights, all of Paul's philosophical activities are fully rooted in social engagement. The breadth of his interests and his impact are truly remarkable. But don't just take our word for it!
