Awards Ceremony 2021

The Department of Philosophy celebrated the achievements of our undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, and faculty at our annual Awards Ceremony on May 21, 2021. The awards ceremony was held virtually for the second year but that did not lessen our pride or reduce our celebration of our award winners’ accomplishments. Our philosophy community continued its annual tradition of honoring our award winners by having faculty and graduate students share personal anecdotes from the classroom and office hours about each of the recipients to the enjoyment 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 of our Award Winners!
