The Evolutionary Studies Program
Evolution is increasingly being used to explain the pageant of human life in addition to the rest of life on earth. BU’s Evolutionary Studies Program (EvoS) is the first of its kind to teach evolution in a truly integrated fashion, beginning with core principles and extending in all directions, from the biological sciences to all aspects of humanity.
The Binghamton Neighborhood Project
The Binghamton Neighborhood Project (BNP) is a collaboration between Binghamton University and community partners to understand and improve the quality of life in our region. We are using the most recent social scientific theory and methods to measure and improve human welfare on a neighborhood-by-neighborhood basis.
Evolutionary Religious Studies
Early evolutionists were fascinated by religious phenomena and how they might be explained from an evolutionary perspective. Nevertheless, evolutionary theory became restricted to the biological sciences and excluded from the study of many human-related subjects for most of the 20th century. Only now is the theory being used to explain all aspects of humanity in addition to the rest of life. The new field of evolutionary religious studies is part of this larger trend.
The Evolution Institute
The mission of the Evolution Institute (EI) is to use evolutionary science to solve real-world problems. Historically, there has been no mechanism for applying current theory and research to public policy formulation. We aim to provide that mechanism.
David Sloan Wilson
David Sloan Wilson is an evolutionist who studies all aspects of humanity in addition to the biological world. He is director of the Evolutionary Studies program and the Binghamton Neighborhood Project. He is co-director of the Evolutionary Religious Studies project and the Evolution Institute.
