Ilene Block, an alumna of the Department of Philosophy, lived a rich and fulfilling life, improving the lives of her family and many, many friends along the way. Her undergraduate experience at the University of Michigan, especially her time with the Department of Philosophy, was both formative and enriching. She was always extremely grateful for the opportunities made possible by her fine education at the University, and she never took for granted the chance to pass the wisdom and keen sense of logic that she developed here onto others. Among those others is her son, Jamie Block, who graduated with Honors in Philosophy at UM in 2011. Initiated by Robert and Dauphine Sloan, dear friends of Ilene and her husband Jerry, the Ilene Goldman Block Memorial Fund provides resources that will enhance undergraduate students' experiences in the department, including conference attendance and related travel, research-related travel, hosting of guest speakers on campus, development of special events, special publication purchases, etc. The Fund will also aim to support students who may be underrepresented in the field of philosophy.
