We bring in renowned philosophers from around the world to present to and engage with our students.

This annual conference is directed by a faculty member (or set of faculty members) in our department, and is focused on a topic of significant philosophical concern.
Faculty / Graduate Student Colloquium
Each semester a research paper is presented by either a member of our faculty or one of our graduate students to a department-wide audience.
Graduate Student Research Colloquia
Each Friday at 4 p.m. in 1007 Oldfather (the philosophy seminar room), our graduate students present ideas — and papers — to an audience that includes undergraduates.
Graduate Student Teaching Colloquia
Each Thursday from 2:00 - 3:00 pm in 1038 Oldfather (the philosophy common room), our graduate students meet to discuss best practices and brainstorm new ways to teach philosophy topics.
