Neal Rubin to chair keynote program at 2022 Science, Technology and Human Rights Conference

Stories | 09.21.22

Adler University faculty member Neal Rubin, Ph.D., will chair and moderate a keynote program exploring the need to promote human rights education (HRE) during the 2022 Science, Technology and Human Rights Conference on Oct. 17-19.  The theme of this year’s conference is The Human Right to Science and Freedom of Expression.

Through brief presentations and moderated discussions, the program, “An Inclusive Perspective on the Training of Future Scientists,” will provide applicable stories and insights into integrating human rights education in developing future generations of scientists and equitably addressing access beyond the traditional classroom.

“We hope to forward the understanding of the human right to science by promoting human rights education for students in the science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) fields and by illustrating how to implement HRE for diverse populations within and outside of academia,” said Dr. Rubin, a professor in Adler’s Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology program.

The members of the keynote panel include:

  • Roseanne Flores, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Psychology Hunter College, City University of New York.
  • Felisa Tibbitts, Ph.D., UNESCO chair in Human Rights and Higher Education Teachers College, Columbia University and Utrecht University, The Netherlands.
  • Gabriel Velez, Ph.D., assistant professor and developmental psychologist, Department of Educational Policy and Leadership College of Education at Marquette University.

The annual conference is organized by the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) Science, Human Rights and Law Program. Dr. Rubin is the previous chair of the Committee on Scientific Freedom and Responsibility at AAAS. The event will be held in a hybrid format, with attendees participating virtually or in person at the AAAS headquarters in Washington, D.C.
