Science and the AAAS: A Long History of Making a Difference
AAAS is founded
After acquiring the journal Science, the Association and journal grow through myriad programs formed over the years to address Association goals.
AAAS stops all annual meetings in the segregated Southern United States.
Seven fellows on Capitol Hill usher in the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships program. Today, STPF places approximately 300 fellows each year in all branches of federal government.
AAAS passes a nondiscrimination resolution long before public support of the rights of LGBTQ individuals.
AAAS holds the first fully accessible professional meeting in Boston, long before passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
AAAS pulls its meeting out of Chicago to respect the ban on meeting in states that did not ratify the Equal Rights Amendment.
1984 and 1985
AAAS sends forensic scientists to help identify skeletal remains from Argentina’s military dictatorship during which over 20,000 people “disappeared.” The evidence collected leads to the conviction of nine former Argentine junta members as well as the development of a method for establishing grandpaternity. As a result of this method, 43 abducted children are reunited with their surviving family members.
Science/AAAS opens an office in Cambridge, UK symbolizing its commitment to the international scientific community.
Science publishes a landmark paper announcing the sequencing of the human genome.
The Senior Scientists and Engineers (SSE) and AAAS forms the AAAS/SSE STEM Volunteer Program to support K-12 STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education, foster STEM literacy, and motivate students to pursue STEM careers.
AAAS undertakes two new projects, BILAT-USA and Link2US, in an effort to foster international cooperation among EU and U.S. researchers. AAAS works with three European agencies to enhance cooperation through information sharing, dialogue, and network formation.
Science/AAAS opens an office in Beijing, China, creating opportunities for more efficient collaborations and dialogues with countries in the Southern Asian region.
AAAS Research Competitiveness Program (RCP) brings together 25 local entrepreneurs in an array of fields, including information technology, health, telecommunications, and agriculture for a series of workshops in Africa. The values upon which this organization is based continue to strengthen through dialogues with the scientific community and through actions that advance science for the benefit of all.
