The American Philosophical Association (APA) and the Philosophy Documentation Center (PDC) jointly sponsor the Prize for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs. This prize recognizes philosophy departments, research centers, institutes, societies, publishers, and other organizations 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.

The APA and the PDC are pleased to announce that the 2017 winner of the APA/PDC Prize for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs is the Society of Philosophers in America (SOPHIA). Congratulations to all involved with this great program!

The award will be presented at the 2018 Eastern Division meeting in Savannah, GA.

For more information on this prize and for a list of previous winners, please visit the APA’s website and/or the PDC’s website.
