Scholars are increasingly interested in influencing policy and public debates. But how can they be most effective at engaging diverse audiences? All are welcome to join the Public Engagement Project at University of Massachusetts Amherst for a lively panel discussion on this topic. Four panelists will discuss public engagement strategies and skills, as well as the resources the campus can provide to support scholars in their efforts.
This event is co-sponsored by the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS), College of Natural Sciences (CNS), the Center for Public Policy and Administration (CPPA), the Center for Research on Families (CRF), the Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR), the Psychology of Peace and Violence Program, and University Relations.
