For UC Researchers and Faculty

UC Faculty Affiliates:

We are excited to work with UC faculty on public engagement with science projects. Please reach out to discuss becoming a Faculty Affiliate of PEWS. PEWS Faculty Affiliates pursue their own public engagement with science activities and lead or collaborate on at least one PEWS project. 

Broad Impacts Partner:

PEWS partners with UC PIs on their broader impacts for NSF grants. We are happy to discuss how we can help support researchers’ robust broader impact plans. Examples of what this might involve include training graduate students in public engagement, offering public engagement training at planned conferences, disseminating outreach products to community partners and the public, and developing community partnerships for co-created outreach initiatives. 

Other ways to get involved:

  • MS Teams: We use Microsoft Teams as our primary collaboration tool. Any member of the UC community interested to get more involved with PEWS is welcome to join our Team.  
  • R&D Group: Researchers interested in public engagement with science are welcome to get involved with the interdisciplinary PEWS ‘R&D’ (research and discussion) group that meets regularly through the year. See the Research and Discussion Group channel in MS Teams for recent topics and meeting announcements.
