Philosophy in an Inclusive Key Summer Institutes (PIKSI) are held at universities across the country; Penn State, MIT, Rutgers, Brown, UC San Diego. These engaging 1 or 2 week programs are designed to encourage undergraduates to consider future study of philosophy by introducing various areas of specialization, exploring what it means to be a professional philosopher and offering helpful preparation for applying to and succeeding at graduate school in philosophy and beyond.
UC Santa Cruz undergraduates of color, women, LGBT+, students from economically disadvantaged communities, and those with disabilities are encouraged to learn more.
PIKSI Ambassador, Monica Pinon, will be holding an informational workshop on the PIKSI programs and application process.
Coffee, tea and cookies will be served.
