New Director Women and Gender in Global Perspective program (WGGP)

I am pleased to announce that Colleen Murphy, Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy, has agreed to serve as the new Director of the Women and Gender in Global Perspective program (WGGP), effective June 1, 2013. As the WGGP director, Colleen will succeed Gale Summerfield who is retiring from Illinois at the end of this month after leading the program since 1998. Colleen joined Illinois in January 2012 from Texas A&M University and has been actively involved with WGGP since her arrival. She has an active research agenda in Political Philosophy, Philosophy of Law, and Applied Ethics. She holds Ph.D. and MA degrees in Philosophy from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and a BA from the University of Notre Dame. Please join me in welcoming Colleen in her new leadership role, and thanking Gale for her many years of service to WGGP, IPS, and the campus.
