It is our distinct pleasure and honor to announce that this year the Philosophy Department is bringing home both of the university top honors for graduate students.

Dr. Mike Ardoline has won the coveted Morton Dissertation Award, out of a pool of approximately 100 doctorate degrees! Wow. Bravo!


Corey Reed has won the prestigious Meritorious Teaching Award. He was selected from more than 250 graduate students who teach at the university. Wow again! Bravo!

As we draw towards the end of the ultimate year of grit and grind, this is a wonderful and refreshing bit of sunshine. Hearty congratulations to Corey and Dr. Ardoline. This reflects both the hard work and the talent that you bring to your research and your classrooms. You bring honor to us all.
