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 2018 winner of the Prize for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs is Michigan State University’s Toolbox Dialogue Initiative. Congratulations to all involved with this great program!

The award will be presented at the 2019 Eastern Division meeting in New York, NY.

About the Toolbox Dialogue Initiative

The Toolbox Dialogue Initiative provides a philosophical yet practical enhancement to cross-disciplinary, collaborative science. This enhancement comes primarily in the form of a dialogue-based “toolbox workshop,” and it is intended for interdisciplinary and interprofessional teams of collaborators. Rooted in philosophical analysis, toolbox workshops enable cross-disciplinary collaborators to engage in a structured dialogue about their research assumptions. This yields both self-awareness and mutual understanding, supplying cross-disciplinary research (CDR) collaborators with the robust foundation needed for effective collaborative research and practice.
