The College of the Environments seeks input and guidance from faculty, students and staff about how to accelerate and empower better science communication. To that end, UW Environment has put together a Science Communication Advisory Group to provide input on our efforts.

In 2012, we based our initial science communications activities on a report issued by the College’s Science Communication Task Force. They were charged with advising us about ways the College could provide support to students, staff and faculty strategically and to share their work more broadly.
