The American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Since its founding in 1780, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences has celebrated outstanding achievement in a variety of disciplines from the humanities and arts to math, physics, and biology. The Academy's members, who are leaders in their fields, work together and with other experts “to cultivate every art and science which may tend to advance the interest, honor, dignity, and happiness of a free, independent, and virtuous people.” The Academy also conducts independent, multidiscplinary, nonpartisan research across multiple areas of inquiry to address the complex problems facing the modern world.
