Public Engagement Project: "Making Your Research Public"

Join this discussion on the most viable ways to make your research available to the public.

Scholars are increasingly interested in making their research public. What are different avenues and strategies to disseminate research outside of the academy? Five 2015 UMass Public Engagement Faculty Fellows will discuss successes and challenges disseminating research to the media, policy makers, community groups, and the general public.
