Dylon McChesney, PhD student in philosophy, is one of only four recipients of the Amit & Meena Chakma Distinguished Teaching by a Student Award this year. The award recognizes excellence in teaching with consideration for intellectual vigor and communication skills in the interpretation and presentation of subject matter while demonstrating concern for and sensitivity to the academic need of the students.
Usually we would gather at the end of Winter term for our Department Awards Ceremony. The ceremony had to be cancelled this year, but we still have deserving prize winners to celebrate! The Philosophy Awards Committee received many strong nominations for these prizes and had difficult decisions to make.
