Welcome to the Penn State Science Policy Society!

We are here to bring scientists and the community closer together, to teach and learn about science policy and the related issues we all deal with, and to help each other with opportunities and advancements in any scientific field we wish to pursue.  The best way to bring everyone together on progressive science policy is to make sure that information is clear, accessible, and interesting.  Check back here, on Facebook, and Twitter often for news on current issues, posts from scientists in different fields, and interesting highlights from the scientific world.

If you are interested in joining, curious about what we do, or just have a question, feel free to email us at psusciencepolicy@gmail.com
