Chancellor named to national science posts
Chancellor Greenwood will fill two prominent positions in the national scientific arena during the next several years: president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and member of the National Science Board.
Greenwood was the top vote-getter in national mail balloting last fall for the position of president-elect of AAAS, the world's largest general science organization. Her one-year term as president-elect begins in February, followed by one-year terms as president and as chair of the board of directors.
AAAS advocates for improved public education in science, enhanced career prospects for young scientists, and strong federal support for scientific research. It also publishes the prestigious weekly journal Science.
President Clinton nominated Greenwood to a six-year term on the 24-member National Science Board, which recommends overall national policies for promoting basic research and education in the sciences. Board members are drawn from industry and universities.
