Please note that after 4 years of outstanding service as the sole editor of EvoS Journal, Rosemarie Chang has stepped to a co-editor position (with Glenn Geher and Dan Glass as co-editors) for the journal for the current year. Huge thanks to Dr. Chang for her exceptional work in making this journal a success in the landscape of higher education!
Dr. Chang recently edited a special edition of EvoS Journal dedicated to issues of evolution in the classroom. Another special issue, edited by Glenn Geher, is in the works – this issue will be a summary of presentations given at the October 2012 EvoS Summit meeting in New Paltz.

What is the EvoS Consortium?
The Evolutionary Studies (EvoS) Consortium is designed to facilitate the development and implementation of Evolutionary Studies Programs at colleges and universities across the United States. An Evolutionary Studies Program introduces students from all majors to evolutionary theory early in their academic careers, emphasizes human-related subjects in addition to biological, promotes the continuation of evolutionary training throughout the undergraduate education, and promotes faculty training and collaborative research related to evolution.
The EvoS Consortium is a website that provides the tools and a community space for evolutionary training in institutions of higher education. The Consortium website (affiliated with EvoS Journal: The Journal of the Evolutionary Studies Consortium) is a space for both faculty and undergraduate members of Evolutionary Studies Programs, as well as those interested in starting a program.
A major goal of the Consortium is growth – we hope to expand the consortium such that EvoS programs replicate widely. As such, we openly welcome other institutions to join. Steps associated with starting an EvoS program and joining the Consortium are described in the pages included in the Membership tab at the top of the page.
