University Groups Pledge Aid for Humanities, Social Sciences

November 26, 2014

The Association of American Universities last week joined with similar groups from other parts of the world to issue the Leiden Statement, pledging support for the humanities and social sciences. The statement says that the members of these associations will:

  • Ensure that social science and humanities disciplines continue to receive necessary support.
  • Highlight the contributions of these disciplines.
  • Ensure that social science and humanities research and education programs "flow without unnecessary constraint to the wider community."
  • Promote "strong funding and support for social science and humanities research."
  • Promote global collaboration in these disciplines.
