Assocation Leadership

Since the founding of the Association of Social  and   Behavioral Scientists in 1935, it has been led  by 78 scholars from  across the nation.  These  individuals represent 50 institutions  of higher  learning and two inter-disciplinary agencies. Of  that total, 29 are Historically  Black Colleges and  Universities and 19 are predominantly White  Universities.

From 1935 to 1944, the first four presidents  served terms. After that time, presidents began  serving one-year  terms.  Below are past  presidents of the Association and with  information about them during their service  as presidents.
