Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Anthropology & Sociology, Education, General Science, Graduate & Professional Schools, Health, Technology

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.

Target demographics: College of Henricopolis targets Native American students, who willl make up approximately one half of the student body in its health science programs. IIHER's program "Hands-On Human Evolution" is aimed at K-12 students and museum/science center visitors of all ages nationally.

Direct beneficiaries per year: We estimate that our direct program delivery will reach approximately 750 this year, our first year of operation.
