The APA awards a prize for “Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs.” It seems to me that a department that has gone out of its way to diversify the philosophical traditions it teaches and on which its members do research would be worthy of such a prize, though so far this has not happened (see the list below). Any suggestions of a program worthy of nomination?
The American Philosophical Association (APA) and the Philosophy Documentation Center (PDC) invite nominations for the 2018 Prize for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs. The deadline to submit nominations is June 30.
The APA and the PDC established this annual prize in 1999 to recognize philosophy departments, research centers, institutes, societies, publishers, and other organizations for creating programs that risk undertaking new initiatives in philosophy and do so with excellence and success. It honors the success of these programs so they may inspire and influence others to follow their lead.
Any APA member may nominate a program, and the nomination must be supported by at least three statements.
