Committee Charge

The committee is charged with studying and making recommendations to the board of officers concerning trends in graduate and undergraduate education in philosophy and conditions relevant to the employment of philosophers in academic and non-academic work. To this end the committee conducts periodic surveys of philosophers and philosophy departments and monitors changes in higher education in the humanities as reported by the learned societies and by government agencies, working closely with other APA committees when appropriate.
 
The chairs of the other APA standing committees (committee on career opportunities; committee on inclusiveness in the professioncommittee on international cooperation; committee on lectures, publications, and research; and committee on the teaching of philosophy) serve in an ex officio capacity on this committee. One member of the graduate student council (GSC) serves as a liaison to this committee.
