John Greenwood Named Philosophy Director of Graduate Studies

The Philosophy Department is happy to announce the establishment of a new position in the Program: Director of Graduate Studies.  John Greenwood will begin at the post for the rest of this year and through 14-15.

With this position, all students who are still taking courses have a single advisor to whom they can go for advice and mentoring.  In addition, in response to the desire of students to have more feedback on their work and their progress in the Program, the DGS will arrange meetings once a year with each of the students who are not yet at the dissertation stage to discuss their progress.  The Student Evaluation Sheets, which faculty members have been very good at completing and submitting to the office for the past two years, will be an important tool enabling the DGS to alert students to particular strengths or weaknesses in their work.
