The American Academy of Political and Social Science

The American Academy of Political and Social Science was first organized on December 14th, 1889.  This organization was aimed to promote progress in the social sciences. Drawing from members of the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania, Swarthmore College, and Bryn Mawr College, the Academy sought to establish communication between scientific thought and practical effort.

The goal of its founders was to foster, across disciplines, important questions in the realm of social sciences, and to promote the work of those whose research aimed to address important social problems.
