The information in this volume is derived chiefly from a 1975 national survey of academic activities in the interdisciplinary area of science, technology, and society (STS), a general term meant to encompass such topical designations as science and technology policy, ethics and values in science and technology, science and humanities, technology assessment and forecasting, technology and human affairs, etc. Teaching and research activities are listed for nearly 400 U.S. colleges and universities, including descriptions of over 2300 courses and over 100 formal programs, institutes, centers, etc. STS-related activities are listed for selected professional organizations, research corporations, government agencies, public interest groups, and foundations. Separate listings of teaching materials, bibliographic resources, and periodicals are also included. (Author)
