Faculty member, doctoral student present on projects with the Science and Human Rights Coalition of AAAS

Brian Gran, associate professor of sociology, and Bill Lenart, a doctoral student, attended a meeting of the Science and Human Rights Coalition of American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

Gran gave a presentation to the coalition about his project, “Indicators of the Right to Science.” Gran’s Indicators Group “seeks to develop a database of measures that form indicators of the right to science, along with a codebook and information about reliability, validity, and other concerns.”

Lenart started the first group for doctoral students. At the meeting, Lenart spoke about the coalition resources available to his project, opportunities for students to get involved in current coalition projects and new initiatives for increasing student engagement.
