In addition, we invite abstract submission for participation in a plenary panel:

• Your name, institution, role at your institution (or prior institutions), and a brief account of what you would like to contribute. We are looking for panel participants to share wisdom and insight concerning the cultivation of virtue in the university, including experiences, resources, and ideas that will be of interest to philosophers teaching at various types of institutions.
