Six Philosophy Departments Issue Statement on Grad Student Visits (see comments for notices from other departments)

Several philosophy departments at universities in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut area have issues a statement regarding visits from admitted and waitlisted graduate students.

The statement reads:

In response to the continued spread of COVID-19 and to help in the collective effort to slow the rate of its spread, we will not be holding in-person visits for admitted and wait-listed prospective PhD students. We are instead offering online, virtual opportunities for admitted and wait-listed students to meet with faculty and graduate students at our respective programs, aiming to provide prospective students as much information about our programs as we can while following the guidance of public health experts. (Details being arranged directly with each of our admitted and wait-listed students.)

With wishes of safety and good health to all,

Columbia Department of Philosophy
CUNY Graduate Center Department of Philosophy
NYU Department of Philosophy
Princeton Department of Philosophy
Rutgers Department of Philosophy
Yale Department of Philosophy

Readers are encouraged to continue to keep the philosophy community informed about how the coronavirus is affecting events they are (were) involved in at here, how their university or college is responding to the spread of the virus here, and read or provide suggestions on moving one’s in-person courses online, as some schools are requiring or recommending, here.
