Summer Programs

A group hike with Women and Philosophy

The Women and Philosophy hike

The summer institutes listed below are designed to encourage undergraduates (and in some cases recent graduates) from underrepresented groups to consider future study of philosophy. Underrepresented groups in philosophy include women, African Americans, Chicano/as and Latino/as, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, LGBTs, economically disadvantaged communities, and people with disabilities.
