The philosophy department maintains two ongoing colloquia. The Philosophy Colloquia series hosts philosophers from all over the country on topics ranging from significant historical figures in philosophy to cutting edge approaches to major questions from the philosophy of mind to the philosophy of race and racism.
The Center for Ethics and Public Policy (CEPP) which promotes discussion and understanding of ethics and policy issues. The center fulfills its mission primarily through organizing public programs. The programs aim to be balanced and represent a diversity of views, especially through panel discussions involving the UMD and regional community. Together these two programs host 5 - 7 talks per semester.
In addition, we have an active student run philosophy club -- The Socratic Society -- that meets weekly. Our own faculty are also quite active giving talks all over the country and internationally. In Spring 2017 we've already schedule a talk and several more are being scheduled. Check back frequently for an updated schedule.
Our own faculty also give talks from time time. If you're interested you can follow our faculty around the world (or at least around North America):
