APA - APA/PDC Prize for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs
Organization: American Philosophical Association
The APA and the Philosophy Documentation Center have established this prize to recognize philosophy departments, research centers, institutes, societies, publishers, or other organizations for creating programs that risk undertaking new initiatives in philosophy and do so with excellence and success. Excellence is to be assessed by a record of achievement, the accomplishment of clearly defined goals, and the appropriateness of the program for emulation by others in the field. Innovation is to be assessed by the development of new research areas, new interdisciplinary connections, new international connections, new modes of teaching or dissemination, new audiences for philosophical work, or extensions of existing boundaries of the discipline.
