Are you interested in science policy, science literacy, or science advocacy?
Washington University in St. Louis Graduate Students Promoting Science Policy, Education, and Research (ProSPER) is a university-wide graduate student group that promotes the use of science in policy-making through science advocacy and literacy, facilitating inter-professional communication, and increasing scientist participation in policy. The group holds a variety of events, including member education events, case studies on how scientists have been involved in science advocacy, and panel discussions.
How ProSPER can help you:
We provide exposure and networking opportunities for unconventional career tracks, practice on how to effectively communicate science to a lay audience, and investigate how the intersection of science, medicine, law, and social sciences influences public policy decisions.
