For the past decade, the Robert E. and Jean F. Holtz Center for Science and Technology Studies has promoted the understanding of science, technology, and medicine as fundamental human endeavors. The center’s activities are funded entirely with private funds, most importantly a generous bequest from the estate of Robert and Jean Holtz. The Holtz gift supports three types of activities:

  • outreach to promote the public understanding of science and technology,
  • research on the relationship between science and society, and
  • education at both the graduate and undergraduate levels on social and humanistic aspects of science, technology, and medicine.

As proud as we are of these programs, the Holtz Center cannot build on these foundations without additional support. If you are considering a gift to support the activities of the Holtz Center, please feel free to contact me, or give directly through our online link.
