SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico—Universities must work systematically, from the president’s office to faculty members and students, to make the campus climate more welcoming and supportive of woman and minorities, said AAAS President Alice S. Huang.

Twenty-five years after it formed, the AAAS Caribbean Division will convene next month with a program focused on issues that could be crucial in the quarter-century to come: neuroscience, science education, and the linkage between science and human rights.

The division will hold its annual conference Friday 24 September and Saturday 25 September in San Juan, Puerto Rico, with a special two-day program of broad interest to researchers, teachers and students, and the public. This year, the meeting expands beyond its usual one-day format, and it is built around two strong themes.
