UPDATE: Due to the vagaries of running a group blog across many time zones, we’ve only now discovered that we were also sent the note and asked to post it. We are happily though belatedly doing so, below.
The faculty and graduate students of the philosophy department at the University of Miami would like to thank the members of the site visit team dispatched by the APA Committee on the Status of Women as part of their Site Visit Program. The team’s visit to our campus (March 2014) was a highly positive experience for the department and we received a very constructive and helpful report. We expect to make a number of changes in our customary practices and departmental policies based on its recommendations. We strongly endorse both the goals and methods of the Site Visit Program and recommend it to other departments that aim to assess and improve climate issues.

Brian Leiter has posted a note from the chair of the University of Miami. The site visit’s outcomes appear to be just what we all want.
Thanks to all!
