The Board on Human Sciences (BoHS), 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. Please take a look at our brochure.
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.
Human Sciences at Work is an initiative of the APLU Board on Human Sciences (BoHS) to demonstrate and highlight the full breadth and depth of the innovative human sciences programs in research, Extension, and teaching that are occurring at the institutions of our members' academic units across the country.
Innovation occurs on a daily basis in Human Sciences -- the people-centered field of study focused on both the science and art of living and working well in a complex world -- and this is our effort to document and salute that fine work!
