Science Policy Summer Institute 2018: Information Session & Pizza Party

Come to a Tuesday Pizza Party & Info Session to learn more about the Duke Science Policy Summer Institute!

This writing-intensive 10-week program at Duke (May 29 - August 3, 2018) will give students a grounding in how to read, write, and understand science policy. During a 4-week curriculum, participants will learn the basics of Science Communication, U.S. Civics, Finance & U.S. Markets, Writing for a Policy Audience (Briefs, Memos & Analyses), and Professional Ethics in Science Policy. The optional 6-week practicum extension to the program will allow students to create policy portfolios by working in the SciPol office to produce policy briefs, memos and legislation for local and national clients at the nexus of science and policy.
