Mission:
The mission of ICSM is encapsulated in its motto "Sapientia Hominem pro Hominibus" - "knowledge of humanity for humanity." The centers that make up ICSM discover, interpret, disseminate, teach, and apply new scientific knowledge about the human condition for the general betterment and edification all peoples.
Results:
We have partnered with the Virginia Museum of Natural History to train museum educators and public school teachers in human evolution so that they can effectively deliver the "Hands-On Human Evolution" program. Our African expeditions have made major fossil discoveries in the Miocene of Libya and we have published a volume and other scientific research papers. We are working closely with physician groups and local agencies to further medical and health science education through teacher workshops and courses.
