Catalysts for Science Policy (CaSP) has three main goals.

  1. Educate graduate students about science policy and emphasize the importance of increasing scientist participation in science policy issues, both local and national.
  2. Increase graduate student awareness of various science policy careers and provide opportunities to help them become better candidates for these positions.
  3. Communicate relevant science topics to government and funding agencies, and to the non-scientist community in Madison.
