Philosophy records more than two dozen community engaged scholarship activities in 2021-22
UofL is one of only 69 universities nationwide to have gained recognition as both a Carnegie Doctoral - High ("Research 1") University as well as a Carnegie Community Engaged University. As a community engaged department populated by active researchers, the Philosophy Department is committed to both of these goals.
This past year, members of the Philosophy Department logged more than two dozen community engaged teaching and service activities. From meeting with community youth groups and religious organizations, to hosting a radio program or doing podcast interviews, to organizing public lecture series and writing op-ed pieces for newspapers, UofL Philosopher faculty make themselves available to our fellow citizens around the Commonwealth. And so do our students! Philosophy and Health Care Ethics students did important internship work with the Envirome Institute and the Center for Health Equity.
