Awards Ceremony 2020

The Department of Philosophy celebrated the achievements of our undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, and faculty at our annual Awards Reception on May 29, 2020. In light of the on-going pandemic, the awards ceremony was held virtually this year but that did not decrease our pride or dampen our celebration of our award winners’ accomplishments. 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 all our department members and look forward to seeing what they accomplish in the future.

Congratulations to all our award winners!
