The Science Policy Group held its first executive board meeting in November! Our events will be divided into three main objectives: to inform students about current science policy topics, to equip them with the skills needed to communicate effectively about these issues, and to help them advocate for change in specific science policies. Thus, we have 3 committees to work on these various projects – tentatively called the inform, equip, and advocate committees.
Given the current events in Washington, the driving force for us to create a vibrant science policy space on campus is greater than ever. We are dreaming big, but our vision depends on effective work at the committee level. With enough people on the committees, the work can be divided up to make this a manageable time commitment. Committees will meet monthly, at a day/time TBD by committee members. If you are interested, please sign up for a committee via this Google Form. The results are open to view so you can see how many people have signed up and decide accordingly. https://goo.gl/forms/8SHXm51RVrDBy93x1
