Weil Family donates $50,000 to SPWP!

We are thrilled and honored that the Weil Family donated $50,000 to the Summer Program for Women in Philosophy (SPWP), a program seeking to correct the gender imbalance in philosophy! If we raise an additional $50,000, the EVC will match our $100,000.  Click GIVE NOW below to support the Summer Program for Women in Philosophy.
