Department Advocacy ToolkitThe American Philosophical Association is pleased to announce that our Department Advocacy Toolkit is now available. The toolkit was prepared by the committee on the status and future of the profession, under the leadership of chair Sally Scholz, in response to increasing cuts to humanities programs nationwide—philosophy programs in particular.

Motivated by our belief in the value of philosophy, the Department Advocacy Toolkit is intended to provide strategies that may be useful to programs that are at risk, programs hoping to insulate themselves against future risk, and programs aiming to strengthen and/or expand. The ideas contained in the toolkit have been selected from across different types of institutions and departments. It is up to the faculty members within a department to decide which ideas will be most effective at their institution and in their department.

We've also created fliers to go along with the toolkit to help departments with outreach to prospective students and other members of their campus communities. These fliers can also be found at the above link.

We hope you will find the Department Advocacy Toolkit to be a helpful resource and encourage you to share it with your colleagues.
