Finding Pathways Forward Through Interdisciplinary Dialogue

The Society for UAP Studies is firmly committed to bringing together thinkers, ideas, and research from both the humanities and from STEM. We believe that only when scientific and humanistic pursuits keep close company will there be true progress on the most difficult of problems humanity faces. The UAP phenomenon is no different — it especially benefits from having a plurality of minds engaged in disciplined debate.

Our Advisory Board reflects this vision.


Advisory Board

Our Board of Advisors works closely with the President of the Society and its Board of Directors. The function of the Advisory Board is to ensure that the Society is steered in an academically and empirically responsible direction, consistent with its overarching mission and goals.
