Affiliate Penn State Programs
Building relationships and partnering with science-focused colleges, centers and institutes across the University has been the focus of the Science Communication Program since its inception.
Penn State is a world leader in multiple disciplines now at the center of urgent public communications and policy discussions -- energy, agricultural biotechnology, engineering, medicine and climatology, to name just a few. Access to leading researchers across these disciplines represents a rich opportunity for expanding and productive collaborations and partnerships.
