Evolutionary Studies Collaborative

Mission and Goals

The Mission of the Evolutionary Studies Collaborative is to advance the study and discussion of evolution at St. Francis College using an interdisciplinary approach by:

  • including objective and unbiased references to evolution, whether through natural selection, sexual selection, social selection, or cultural selection in a range of courses across disciplines;
  • fostering discussions about biological, psychological, or cultural evolution in the classroom or on campus;
  • promoting via campus events a greater awareness and understanding of evolution in its multiple dimensions.

The Goals of ESC include (but are not limited to):

  • coordinating meetings with students and professors who wish to discuss evolution (and to find ways of incorporating evolutionary studies in courses);
  • creating on-campus workshops or symposia highlighting the importance of an evolutionary perspective to learning and teaching across disciplines;
  • encouraging students to offer periodic *Evolution Everywhere* presentations (in class, on campus, or via a Collaborative-related blog);
  • holding public events on campus;
  • inviting speakers to campus;
  • conducting field trips;
  • working with the ASEBL Journal and blog (especially in terms of a biennial Moral Sense Colloquium);
  • initiating a stand-alone blog (with student involvement) devoted entirely to evolutionary studies at SFC;
  • engaging with other evolutionary studies programs at other colleges.
