President Cauce has encouraged us to share our expertise for the public good but what role can academics play in solving today’s pressing problems? How can we break out of the cloistered world of academic journals and conferences and share our research with a broad audience? How can we bring facts to the forefront of today’s urgent issues? Join us on Saturday, April 29th from 9am-3pm in the Allen Library South, Research Commons to learn more. This interdisciplinary program will provide faculty and students practical guidance on engaging the public and policy-makers via the press (print & radio), social media, and other venues. An unconference style lunch is included with registration. Space is limited so register today!
