The Department of Philosophy celebrated the achievements of our students and faculty at our annual awards ceremony on May 20, 2022. We were able to return to an in-person celebration in Savery Hall, and we were thrilled to celebrate our award winners’ accomplishments together. Our heartfelt tradition of sharing personal anecdotes about each recipient continued, to the delight of family, friends, and classmates.
We are proud of the accomplishments of all our department members and look forward to seeing what they achieve in the future.
Congratulations to all our award winners!
