The Department's graduate students organize an annual Spring Colloquium, featuring three speakers on a single topic or theme. Graduate students comment on each talk. The Department has hosted a Spring Colloquium every year since the first weekend program in 1990.
The Spring Colloquium is funded by the James B. and Grace J. Nelson Endowment for the Teaching of Philosophy.
