College Magazine recently ranked Penn the #1 college for African American Studies and named the Program on Race, Science, and Society as one of Penn Africana Studies' main strengths.
The Program on Race, Science and Society (PRSS) is an initiative at the University of Pennsylvania devoted to transformative and interdisciplinary approaches to the role of race in scientific research and biotechnological innovations, aiming both to promote social justice and to dispel the myth that race is a natural division of human beings.
