Engaging Scientists Campus Events
This event was part of the Engaging Scientists project, organized by AAAS DoSER in consultation with the AAAS Center for Public Engagement. Six universities hosted speaker events to explore challenges, opportunities, and effective strategies for constructive dialogue about science by scientists with diverse (and particularly with religious/spiritual) publics.
