The mission of ICSM is encapsulated in its motto "Sapientia Hominem pro Hominibus" - "knowledge of humanity for humanity."

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.

We are working closely with physician groups and local agencies to further medical and health science education through teacher workshops and courses.
