Audience: Current Graduate Students, Faculty

Effectively communicating your work allows you to not only advocate for your area of research, but also to recruit top graduate students to your lab. More than that, many public policy decisions are guided by scientific and scholarly knowledge — or the lack thereof. The ability to clearly convey your research is vital to develop informed voters and politicians as well as inspire the next generation of researchers and scholars.

The CLAS dean's office is pleased to announce a faculty workshop on “Communicating your research with the public” from noon – 1:30 pm on Thursday, March 30.

All areas of research are invited to participate (natural sciences, social sciences and humanities). We believe that we have much to learn from each other, and that all areas of inquiry can benefit from better communication with the public.
