Science & Education Policy Association (SEPA)

The Science & Education Policy Association is a student-run organization founded at the Tri-I aiming to facilitate the interaction between scientists and the world of science policy. Scientists are uniquely qualified to speak on science-related issues, both to advocate on behalf of science research and to communicate how science is beneficial to the public good. Bringing scientists to the forefront of these conversations will lead to more informed policies.

Within the Tri-I and broader NYC community, SEPA aims to:

    1. Educate scientists on the intersection of science and policy
    2. Explore science or education policy as a career path
    3. Train scientists to communicate to non-scientific audiences for advocacy and general public outreach
