The EvoS Program organizes opportunities for faculty and students at New Paltz to develop a deep understanding of evolutionary ideas, conduct cross-disciplinary research using evolution as a synthesizing paradigm, and contribute to novel ideas across disciplines guided by evolutionary reasoning. The program is also funded partly with a grant awarded by the National Science Foundation.
