FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Columbia University’s Rethink Program has been awarded the 2015 APA/PDC Prize

NEWARK, Del. — Dec. 3, 2015 — The American Philosophical Association (APA) and the Philosophy Documentation Center (PDC) are pleased to announce that the 2015 APA/PDC Prize for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs has been awarded to Rethink: A Philosophy Community Outreach Program at Columbia University.

Rethink promotes engagement with philosophical subject matter outside a traditional academic context. Partnering with organizations based in Harlem and the Financial District, volunteers lead discussion workshops on topics such as power, authority, epistemic justification, testimony, decision-making, responsibility, authenticity, punishment, racism, and equality. The program is supported by the New York Council for the Humanities and the  Heyman Center for the Humanities at Columbia University.

The Prize for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs has been jointly sponsored by the APA and the PDC since 1999. It recognizes 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. The prize award, provided by the PDC, includes campus-wide electronic access to a bundle of philosophy resources for one year and an award plaque. It gives professional recognition to the winning program and also benefits its host institution. Congratulations to our colleagues at the Rethink Program!
