Weil Family donates $100,000 to SPAWP!

We are thrilled and honored that the Pat and Chris Weil Family Foundation donated $100,000 to the Summer Program for the Advancement of Women in Philosophy (SPAWP), a program seeking to correct the gender imbalance in philosophy! This donation was matched dollar for dollar by the UC San Diego Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor. We are deeply grateful to all our generous donors!
