Metcalf Chair Awarded to Noted Philosopher

Dr. Linda Martín Alcoff (Professor of Philosophy at Hunter College and the CUNY Graduate Center) has been awarded a 2013-14 Marquette University Metcalfe Chair. The Ralph H. Metcalfe Chair is named for Marquette alumnus Ralph Metcalfe. It is a non-residential chair that brings an African-American, Latina/o or Native American scholar from any academic discipline to Marquette University. Since 1982, the Metcalfe Chair has enriched the university with a roster of notable scholars. Dr. Alcoff will meet with faculty, and students, give a public lecture, and a lecture in the Colloquium series. The exact dates of her visit to campus are still to be determined.
