Faculty Moderator: Jeff Kasser, Assistant Professor, Philosophy
In 2008, Cori Wong graduated from CSU summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s in Philosophy (and a concentration in Religious Studies). She just completed her Dual-PhD in Philosophy and Women’s Studies at Penn State University and for the past few years has been passionately pursuing avenues for doing philosophy more publicly. Her blog and YouTube channel are part of a larger effort to empower others and emphasize the value of living more philosophically, which she refers to as “philifesophy.” In addition to continuing to teach undergraduate-level courses, Cori is working to establish her own professional practice in philosophical advising and consulting.
