Welcome to the Department of Philosophy

Welcome to the Department of Philosophy at Penn State!

We invite you to explore our website and learn more about our diverse community of excellent scholars, teachers, and students.

The Department of Philosophy at Penn State is committed to supporting Black students, faculty and staff in our department and across the university. We are serious about advancing the diversity of our discipline and of academia more broadly and we are proud of our accomplishments on this front. At the same time, we acknowledge that making our department and academic community a truly welcoming, inclusive, and supportive space for people of color requires ongoing work. We are committed to doing that work. We stand in solidarity with those who are fighting against white supremacy, police violence, and anti-Black racism in all forms.
