It gives me great pleasure to share our inaugural Science Communication (SciComm) newsletter with you. The SciComm program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is a 12-credit certificate program that started in fall 2018. Our current cohort of students is the fifth cohort in our program, and I can think of no better way to celebrate out program’s fifth anniversary than by launching this newsletter. We are planning on a bimonthly newsletter for now, but who knows – we might start switching to a monthly rotation soon.
The newsletter’s purpose is threefold:
I hope that you enjoy this small glimpse into the diverse and multi-layered world of science communication. I am always open for suggestions on featuring specific topics related to science communication in our newsletter. Please use our anonymous feedback form to leave any feedback.
