James and Susan Keller Teaching Fellows

Dr. Jim Keller devoted 39 years to teaching philosophy at Wofford College. As part of his legacy, he chose to make the Wofford College Department of Philosophy a beneficiary of his estate. As he requested before his death in 2016, the resources were used to establish an endowed fund to support faculty in the department. The James A. and Susan K. Keller Fellowship in Philosophy is a two-year teaching fellowship intended for early-career philosophers to gain valuable teaching experience at a selective liberal arts college. In turn, fellows enhance the Wofford curriculum and the philosophy department with diverse perspectives and unique expertise. A strategic goal of the college is to increase and support diversity across the campus, and the Keller Fellowship aims to support that. With this generous gift, Keller’s influence on Wofford College lives on.
