The Center for Human Evolution and Diversity (CHED) promotes the transdisciplinary study of the human condition. CHED supports and promotes team-based, explicitly interdisciplinary basic research on the evolution of humans and human diversity, and educational research and outreach related to this research. CHED faculty share a commitment to communicating information about human evolution and diversity in a clear and forthright way that will be meaningful for all people because an appreciation of human history and heritage is conducive to the health and well-being of individuals and society. CHED’s core faculty have diverse intellectual backgrounds and affiliations. CHED issues calls for internal (Penn State-based) grant proposals once a year, in the fall. Penn State faculty interested in learning more about or becoming affiliated with CHED should contact Mark Shriver and Nina Jablonski
