Professor Receives Graves Award

Assistant Professor of Philosophy Leland Saunders received a $10,100 Graves Award in Humanities to support his research project, The Structure of Moral Judgment: Philosophical Perspectives. That research centers on questions in moral psychology, with an emphasis on the psychological processes of moral judgment and their relationship to questions in moral theory and metaethics. 

The prestigious Graves Award, under the auspices of the American Council of Learned Studies, is available to humanities scholars of “fully credited, privately endowed liberal arts colleges in California, Oregon, and Washington.” Winners of the 2011-13 Graves Award included professors from the University of the Pacific, Dominican University, Reed College, Occidental College, and Stanford University.
