Climate and Service


Climate in Philosophy

I am a member of the climate committee in the Rutgers philosophy department. For climate-related resources at Rutgers, click here. For recent data on the representation of women in philosophy, click here.

From 2015 to 2019, I organized the climate survey for the Rutgers philosophy department. The climate survey gauges the climate among graduate students in general, and among graduate students who are members of underrepresented groups in particular. Please feel free to contact me (isaac.wilhelm@rutgers.edu) if you would like more information, or if you would like advice on how to set up and run a climate survey in your own department.

And of course, please feel free to contact me, or anyone else on the climate committee, with any climate-related concerns you may have.
