Our objective is to inform students about and provide information and opportunities regarding potential careers in science policy/law (patent, etc), education (at research one institutions/liberal arts/ K12/community college), industry (they’re setting up internships for students to perform with a select group of companies throughout the US), non-profit, business, science writing (for which a couple of courses have already been generated). In other words: We intend to introduce more meaningful career development experiences and resources. We want to create an environment where we provide training in fields of interest and support to those who want to pursue careers within or outside of academia.
