Science GRO talks about the new Congress with UVA psychology department

Discussion focused on the importance of advocacy and funding and programmatic challenges for psychological science

The University of Virginia’s clinical psychology program invited Science GRO to come talk with faculty and graduate students on January 21 about the intersections of psychological science, public policy and politics at the federal level. Discussion focused on the importance of advocacy — on the part of individual researchers as well as universities and science associations such as APA — and the funding and programmatic challenges that lie ahead for psychological science as a new Congressional session opens here in Washington. 

Science GRO staff are pleased to come speak with your university communities on topics related to science funding and legislation, nonacademic job opportunities for psychologists, advocacy training and/or other topics related to your departmental interests in 2011.
