Public Communication for Researchers (PCR): Supporting communication beyond the ivory tower

The relationship between researchers and the public impacts us all, affecting our freedom to do our work, the funding of our research, and the policies that shape our world. Researchers’ ability to impact the world hinges on the trust and understanding between them and the rest of society.

It is not enough for us to do good work. We must also engage with the public about why that work matters and what it implies.

Public Communication for Researchers (PCR) invites graduate students to help shape the conversation. Join us for a series of free peer-led workshops and practice opportunities in public communication.
