COMPASS is an organization that helps scientists effectively share their knowledge in the public discourse and decision-making. It provides practical support for scientists to engage without compromising the accuracy of their science.
The Institutes of Energy and the Environment (IEE) has partnered with COMPASS to help Penn State faculty, researchers, and graduate students to better share their discoveries and results with the public, journalists, policymakers, and beyond.
COMPASS brings together expert facilitators and media professionals who train researchers on how the best ways to make their work accessible to larger audiences.
In 2017, IEE and COMPASS have developed four events for Penn Staters:
- Graduate Student Workshop
- Faculty Workshop
- Reception for current and former COMPASS attendees
