Philosophy Department Faculty and Students Win Chancellor’s Awards

In the Spring of 2014, the Philosophy Department continued its tradition of garnering numerous Chancellor’s Awards.  Assistant Professor Adam Cureton received a Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Advising.  Among the many advisees well-served by Prof. Cureton was undergraduate Lindsay Lee, recently selected as a Rhodes Scholar.  Professor Cureton’s outstanding service as a mentor and advisor is especially noteworthy given the high bar for mentoring and advising set by the rest of the faculty in the Department.

Graduate student Trevor Hedberg and undergraduate major Robert Nowell each received well-deserved Chancellor’s Awards for Extraordinary Professional Promise.   Undergraduate major Kathleen Connelly received a Chancellor’s Award for Extraordinary Academic Achievement.  Undergraduate major Eric Dixon received the Chancellor’s highest student honor, a Torchbearer Award, for combining outstanding academic achievement and exemplary service to the university and community.  Some of their many accomplishments are noted below in the notes on the graduate and undergraduate programs.  These outstanding students, like so many others in the Department, have contributed a great deal to the Department and the College of Arts and Sciences more generally.  Congratulations to all!
