Representing the “Human” dimension of the “Sciences”
The Board on Health and Human Sciences (BHHS), is an association of administrators of higher education units responsible for research/discovery, extension/outreach, and teaching/learning programs in the human sciences at universities across the country. Their members are committed to a national agenda that unifies disciplines within and beyond the human sciences to enrich people’s lives.
Purposeful integration that addresses issues challenging individuals, families and communities is the role of human sciences. Solutions to major issues facing individuals, families and communities typically cannot be found in only one discipline. The human sciences bring together multiple perspectives to address human needs.
Professionals in the field of human sciences integrate the best thinking from various disciplines to address and solve important challenges that we face individually, as families and communities, and as a society. We integrate disciplines to solve practical, reoccurring problems that individuals, families and communities face.
