Historical Note

In 1968 the University Program on Science and Society was established. It was a cooperative program among faculty and students whose purpose was to provide the colleges and universities with a means of focusing curricula and departmental resources upon major social problems related to the growth of science and technology. North Carolina State University (NCSU), University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Duke University, St. Augustine's College, and Shaw University participated in the program, which explored ways to bridge the isolation of "campus" from "community."

The first director of the the University Program on Science and Society was Donald Woods Shriver, Jr., of NCSU. He had been the director of the Experimental Study of Religion and Society at NCSU' School of Liberal Arts since 1964. That program had been funded through a grant from the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation. Walter Baermann, also of NCSU, was another active participant in this program.
