Alumni Association Student Award to Philosophy PhD student, Sam Pollock
 
A huge congratulations to our PhD student, Sam Pollock, who has been awarded a 2015 Alumni Association Student Award. Only 4 awards are made each year, and Sam was one of them. The award is for making 'an outstanding contribution to the life of the University and the wider community'.
 
For two years, Sam has worked to bring philosophy to disadvantaged people in our community, and thereby give them self-respect, a new thoughtfulness and a pathway into academia. She works constantly with charities helping former addicts, convicts and others get back on track, and even into university education. She teaches in schools around the local area, introducing children to philosophy, which has had a significant impact on their learning.
