Professor of Anthropology, Yolanda T. Moses, is one of eight UCR faculty who have been named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

AAAS is “an international non-profit organization dedicated to advancing science around the world by serving as an educator, leader, spokesperson and professional association,” as stated on AAAS’ website. Fellows within AAAS are recognized for “meritorious efforts to advance science or its applications.”

Professor Moses was named a fellow due to her “contribution to anthropology, especially her work on race and racism, race and gender in higher education, and the leadership she has provided the profession.”

Professor Moses received her Ph.D from UCR in 1976 and is the Special Assistant to the Chancellor for Excellence and Diversity/Vice Provost, Conflict Resolution. Her research focuses on the broad question of what are the origins of social inequality in complex societies through comparative ethnographic and survey methods.
