Minorities and Philosophy (MAP)

The University of Michigan chapter of Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) was established in 2013 as part of the larger national MAP organization.

Tim McKay, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Physics, Director of the LSA Honors Program, and member of UM's STRIDE (Strategies and Tactics for Recruiting to Improve Diversity and Excellence) Committee, provided the local chapter's inaugural lecture, "Women in STEM and Philosophy: Data and Models Inform our Response," in October, 2013

A second MAP lecture, in February 2014, was provided by Kristie Dotson, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Michigan State University. Her lecture was titled, "What are We Doing Here? Considering Professional Philosophical Praxis."
