We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. -Aristotle

Alumni and friends of the Department of Philosophy are invited to help Northeastern students continue their pursuit of excellence by contributing to our NEIU Foundation account. Your support is more important now than ever as state budget challenges have led to reduced funding for higher education.

The Department of Philosophy has ambitious goals:

  • Grow our Foundation account by $1,000 to fund the Ethics Bowl and a Student Award
  • Fund scholarships
  • Host speakers and provide honorariums

If we get within $200 of our $1,000 goal for the Ethics Bowl, our faculty will pitch in to cover the difference.

Your gift—whatever its size—will be greatly appreciated. It will help inspire and support the next generation of graduates from the Department of Philosophy. Thank you for your generosity and continued support.
