Office of Science, Policy and Society Programs

The programs within the Office of Science, Policy and Society Programs engage science and scientists with many communities, including those of STEM education, government, workforce capacity, religion and law. We promote responsible conduct of, and advise on, investment in scientific research. Together, we advance the appropriate role of science in the service of society.

See below for some of the recent work our programs have done!
