PPEL 2020 Award Winners

May 17, 2020

Julia Nichols has been awarded the inaugural Gabe Cohen Award for Excellence in PPEL. Gabe, a former PPEL student, combined the qualities of being a truly outstanding student with a keen interest in philosophy, politics, economics and law. He was typically the last to leave the room after a class, always interested and open-minded, about our subject. Julia has demonstrated all those qualities during her time in the program. 

Trey Miller is the recipient of the 2020 Christopher Maloney Prize in PPEL for oursanding work in the PPEL major. Christopher Maloney, the former Head of Philosophy, who was one of the real driving forces behind instituting the PPEL major. Professor Maloney supported PPEL in every way possible, so that our students can receive the very best education that the University of Arizona has to offer. Without him, there would not have been a PPEL major. 

Our congratulations, and thanks, to both Julia and Trey.
