Announcing SSN’s New Policy Engagement Workshop
The Scholars Strategy Network is developing a new Policy Engagement Workshop to offer scholarly researchers practical, hands-on skills for effective work with public policymakers and civic organizations.
In cooperation with the William T. Grant Foundation, SSN is developing an interactive, day-long policy engagement training workshop to encourage mutually beneficial collaborations between policymakers and scholarly researchers. There are many ways researchers can participate in the policy process – ranging from publicly communicating research results to offering counsel to help public officials better identify issues and evaluate potential solutions. To help scholars make the most of civic opportunities, this project offers an intensive introduction for scholars who are relatively new to working with public policymakers and civic organizations.
At least four workshops will be offered in the fall of 2017. For more information or to inquire about scheduling a workshop, contact Hannah Reuter.
