The Center of Science, Policy and Society Programs (CSPSP) serves society, government, and the research community through a diverse set of activities. Its programs address several objectives of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), including furthering the work of scientists, improving the effectiveness of science in the promotion of human welfare, and fostering scientific freedom and responsibility.
The four CSPSP units include:
Working with the Office of Government Relations , the Center plays a leading role in producing the weekly Policy Alert ; the annual S&T Policy Forum ; and the annual Leadership Seminar in S&T Policy .
The Center is currently hosting ELISS , a new program to prepare and empower graduate and professional students to collaborate across boundaries to solve real-world problems throughout their professional and civic lives. The hands-on, competitive program harnesses the talents and creativity of tomorrow’s leaders to help communities and the nation understand and address tough issues in theme areas ranging from health to environment to education.
The Center produces occasional reports on issues in science, policy, and society. The State of Science Policy, a Festschrift  on the occasion of the retirement of Albert H. Teich, the former Director of the AAAS Science and Policy Programs, is now online. A workshop on interdisciplinary research and education has resulted in an online publication on best practices. The Center also maintains a list of graduate programs in science and policy . For a full list of recent reports, visit the CSTSP publications  page.
Events in Washington DC are announced through a listserv for the Washington Science Policy Alliance (WSPA). For more information and to subscribe, visit the WSPA info  page.
