Columbia Philosophy Outreach Program Wins Award for Excellence & Innovation (updated)


Rethink: A Philosophy Community Outreach Program at Columbia University, has been awarded the 2015 APA/PDC Prize for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs. The aim of the prize, which has been jointly sponsored by the American Philosophical Association and the Philosophy Documentation Center since 1999, is “to recognize philosophy departments, research centers, institutes, societies, publishers, or other organizations for creating programs that risk undertaking new initiatives in philosophy and do so with excellence and success, and to publicize the success of these programs so they may inspire and influence others to follow their lead.” More information, including previous winners, can be found here.

UPDATE (12/4/15): You can read an interesting interview with Max Hayward, philosophy PhD student at Columbia and one of the founders of Rethink, here.
