Newkirk Center for Science & Society

Our Mission

The Newkirk Center focuses on the interaction between science and society, including the role of society in the production of scientific knowledge and technological systems and artifacts and the effects of scientific knowledge on society.  It seeks to explore and think critically about the process by which scientific information is communicated to the public and policy-makers.  It fosters the use of science to enhance the environment, education, health care, public infrastructure, and justice. The Center carries out its mission through support of research, public engagement, and events.


Our Programs


Your Impact

We hope you will join us as we raise funds to support our community programs and graduate student fellowships at the Newkirk Center for Science and Society. Each year the Newkirk Center for Science and Society brings research and science to the community through free events and provides fellowships for graduate students engaged in community-based research on scientific problems from across the campus. Last year, we provided $65,000 in fellowships alone.


Your support will have a direct impact on our programs and fellowships. Together, we can build a brilliant future for our Anteaters and communities.
