Private donations sustain many of our extra-curricular student activities and many meaningful philosophical projects.  Donations have helped to support:

1. A speaker series for students and faculty

2. Our biennial department conference

3. Our annual student conference

4. A department reading group

5. A generous senior student essay prize

6. A department mentoring program, and

7. Maintenance of the department’s library.

In a time where much debate swirls around the value of a liberal arts education and study of the humanities, the department and its students are especially grateful for your recognition of the significance that the study of philosophy brings to the lives of those who engage in it.
