Going Public: Sharing Research Beyond the Academy

President Cauce has encouraged UW students, faculty, and staff to share their 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?

This Saturday, April 29th, UW Libraries, the eScience Institute, and the Simpson Center for the Humanities will host Going Public: Sharing Research Beyond the Academy. Featuring lectures and workshops by members of UW and Seattle media organizations, Going Public will provide faculty and students practical guidance on engaging the public and policy-makers via the press, social media, and other venues. The event will run from 9am – 3pm. Registration is free and includes lunch. A full schedule of event activities and registration link can be found here.
