Philosophy course featured in Ohio Prison Education Exchange Project (OPEEP) Newsletter
One of our Spring 2023 course offerings, The Philosophy of Happiness with Professor Amy Shuster, was featured in the Autumn 2024 newsletter of the Ohio Prison Education Exchange Project (OPEEP). The OPEEP article included reflections from students on how the course impacted them. The reflections were drawn from the printed program produced for the course's closing ceremony. "At the end of the semester," says Professor Shuster, "each student invited one special guest--often a friend or family member--to come to the prison and take part in our course through a closing ceremony where students offered presentations on the course material as well as speeches on the overall experience of learning inside a prison. This has been one of my favorite ways to bring this course to a close: sharing out the achievements of our learning community." The Philosophy Department is thrilled to partner with OPEEP to offer these courses for our students.
