Event description

Description

Does your research have policy implications? The Scholars Strategy Network (http://www.scholars.org) seeks to improve public policy and strengthen democracy by organizing scholars working in America's colleges and universities, and connecting scholars and their research to policymakers, citizens associations, and the media.

We have just founded a Central Florida chapter of the organization, located right here at USF!

Please come out to this even to learn more in an informal setting, and let us know what kinds of activities, workshops, and social event would be most useful to you.

To accommodate for the invitees who cannot make it to this event, we have another event scheduled for Tuesday, October 24, 2017 from 4:30-6:30 pm, at World of Beer. These events provide a chance to meet other civic-minded scholars from around the area while you enjoy some food and drinks. We hope you join us for one or both events.

More information about Scholars Strategy Network:

SSN members spell out the implications of their research in ways that are broadly accessible. They engage in consultations with policymakers in Washington DC and state capitals. They make regular contributions to the media and share findings and ideas with journalists and bloggers. Many SSN scholars also work with advocates and civic organizations to address pressing public challenges at the national, state, and local levels. SN members believe that university scholars should share their work with fellow citizens – and they endeavor to further good public policymaking and responsive democratic government. Beyond these shared values, members hold a variety of views – and SSN as a whole does not endorse any political party, candidate, or specific policy position. Each SSN scholar takes individual responsibility for signed contributions and choices about civic engagement.
