Saybrook University Events
Human Science and Organizational Conference Call for Prospective Students
On Thursday, June 14, join Dr. Joann McAllister, Human Science Program Chair, and Dr. Nancy Southern, Organizational Systems Co-Chair, to learn more about Saybrook programs. Prior to student questions, Dr. McAllister and Dr. Southern will lead discussion on select topics. To register, please RSVP HERE.
Human Science (HS) is a discipline rooted in the European scholarly tradition of qualitative theory. HS programs investigate issues that intersect between art, science and philosophy to discover how individuals and societies can improve their condition.
HS Graduates work in diverse fields, from urban violence prevention or community organizing to bioethics; they work with indigenous populations, provide alternative health care treatments to those in need and study alternative states of consciousness. Others evaluate the effectiveness of city and state government intervention programs, help develop effective school system educational programs, or teach in higher education.
Dr. McAllister has worked with non-profit organizations and government agencies, including the Office of the California Attorney General, conducting research and developing violence prevention and intervention programs to address intimate partner violence and the needs of at-risk youth. After discussing Human Science opportunities at Saybrook, she will lead a question and answer session with participants.
OS programs are designed for students that want to contribute to emerging social needs for transformative, innovative, sustainable organizational and social change. Our goal is to produce graduates who become leaders in sustainable organizational changes all over the world.
Dr. Southern worked in the field of organizational development, consulting to public, corporate, and non-profit executive teams and teaching academic courses to mid-career managers. Her work is focused in facilitating transformational learning for individuals and organizations.
Saybrook faculty are dedicated to helping each student develop a personal leadership philosophy informed by humanistic values, as well as the capacity to lead within a framework of personal and professional ethics, and responsibility to their organizations and communities.
