Jane Drexler is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Salt Lake Community College. Since arriving at SLCC in 2007, Drexler has served as Faculty Senate President (2012-2014) and in several other faculty leadership roles. She won the SLCC Foundation Teaching Excellence Award in 2016, and the National Blackboard Catalyst Award for Exemplary Course design in 2010.
Drexler is a presenter, contributor and participant in the Philosophy as a Way of Life Project, funded by the National Endowment of Humanities and by the Mellon Foundation. She is currently member-at-large of the American Association of Philosophy Teachers (AAPT) Executive Board, Chair of the AAPT International Conference-Workshop organizing committee, and member of the American Philosophy Association’s (APA) Committee on Teaching Philosophy. She also serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of Teaching Philosophy, the premier journal for the discipline’s pedagogy in the U.S. She has essays published in general-audience and peer-reviewed journals and books; most recently, in the book Philosophers in the Classroom (Hackett, 2018), a collection of essays from 24 of the discipline’s most award-winning professors (Drexler’s is the only essay from a professor at a community college).
Jane is a recreational cyclist, beginner rock climber, not-bad guitarist, not-great violinist, somewhat-adventurous hiker, and occasional world-traveler; who sometimes prefers to binge-watch Netflix than to read a philosophical tome.
Our philosophy workshops are FREE. That said, for those who still have the steady income to do so in these trying times, we could really use your financial support right now. Donations help to cover workshop leader honorariums, implementation, and resource archiving, as well as community workshop scholarships for those in need. You can make a donation by clicking here or on the button above. For those facing more challenging financial circumstances, we ask that you please try to “pay it forward” with acts of kindness for your neighbors and community.
