About AGSP

AGSP is a formal, university-funded association run by graduate students in the philosophy department at Loyola University Chicago. Each year, we elect a board, which takes on the responsibility of making our voices heard in the department, the graduate school, and occasionally the university at large. We also organize conferences and colloquia and promote social activities. In addition to these roles, we do what we can to promote the interests of our members. We take care of the illustrious Graduate Student Lounge in the department, and we maintain a small library in the Lounge (complete with a small collection of journals). We also do what we can to provide graduate students travel stipends for conferences in which they are participating.
