Join us for our annual award ceremony for the Iris Marion Young Awards. The Young Award for Political Engagement honors Iris Marion Young, a philosopher and social theorist of international renown.  Young was a professor in GSPIA during the 1990s before taking a position as Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago in 2000.  She died in 2006 of cancer.

To recognize those in the Pitt community who are politically engaged both inside and outside of academia, Iris Marion Young Awards are given each year to a University of Pittsburgh undergraduate student, a graduate student, a faculty member, and a staff member.
