Notre Dame Minorities and Philosophy 

About Us

The Philosophy Department at the University of Notre Dame is a part of Minorities and Philosophy, a graduate-student led network of over 140 autonomous chapters all over the world. We organize events to stimulate discussion of topics relevant to minority participation in philosophy and to build community and improve departmental climate. Events include invited speakers, undergraduate and graduate mentoring, panel discussions, practical workshops, and reading groups. 


MAP's mission is to remove barriers to participation in philosophy for members of marginalized groups. We aim to stimulate discussion of diversity and inclusion in philosophy, build community among scholars from underrepresented groups, and shift the culture of academic philosophy in ways that improve working conditions for such scholars.
