Ursinus Alumna and Students Connect at Philosophy of Education Conference
Several Ursinus Education majors attended the North Eastern Philosophy of Education Society (NEPES) conference held this year at Villanova University.
Mason Jolivette (’25), Emily Benning (’24), and Trey Dykeman, (’25), Ursinus students who have studied educational theory & philosophy with education professor Seamus Mulryan, attended the North Eastern Philosophy of Education Society (NEPES) conference held this year at Villanova University. One of the connections made there was with Ursinus alumna Samantha Ha-Dimuzio (’16), who presented at the conference and is a Ph.D. student at the Boston College Lynch School of Education. “Being able to attend NEPES not only gave me more ideas to ponder and bring to my current classes, but it also gave me greater confidence to share theories and to continue to challenge my own,” Benning said, “I had the opportunity to speak to insightful and compassionate scholars who were just as excited as me to find others who researched similar ideas. It was an amazing experience I will remember for a long time.”
NEPES draws scholars from Ohio to Maine to Maryland and is a regional affiliate of the international Philosophy of Education Society, whose membership draws from around the world.
