Undergraduate Diversity Institutes in Philosophy

There are a number of undergraduate diversity institutes supporting and encouraging students from underrepresented groups—such as people of color, women, LGBT+ people, people with disabilities, and people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds—studying philosophy. These institutes help introduce undergraduates to philosophy as a career and help prepare them for graduate school.
