Committee: Philosophy in Two-Year Colleges

Committee Charge

The committee oversees activities of the association related to the teaching of philosophy at two-year and junior colleges and initiates efforts to encourage and improve teaching in such institutions. It prepares periodic reports to the board and to the members of the association. The committee seeks to encourage cooperation between philosophers, other teachers in the humanities, and administrators in planning and evaluating instructional programs and in identifying appropriate qualifications for teaching philosophy in two-year institutions, while at the same time advising graduate departments of philosophy concerning ways of preparing philosophers to teach most effectively in a junior college setting.
 
The chair of the committee on the teaching of philosophy serves in an ex officio capacity on this committee. One member of the committee on academic career opportunities and placement serves as a liaison to this committee.
