Distinguished Visitors

Humphrey Professorship 

The Humphrey Professorship in Feminist Philosophy is an endowed position that allows a visiting scholar in feminist philosophy to spend a semester in residence at the Philosophy Department every few years.  Each Humphrey Professor offers a series of lectures, teaches a seminar, and mentors graduate and senior undergraduate students.

Rudrick Visiting Scholar Series

The Brian Rudrick Visiting Scholar in Philosophy is made possible by a generous gift from the estate of Dr. Brian F. Rudrick. Shortly before his untimely death, the Department of Philosophy named Dr. Rudrick an official “friend of the department” because of his inspiring example of lifelong learning and for demonstrating for our students how one can make a philosophical contribution to professional and public life, whatever career one chooses.
