Advocacy

RCSA officers, personnel, grantees and friends actively engage in advocacy on behalf of the cause of science advancement. Whether by print, personal appearances, video, website or social media, we strive to offer the academic community, policymakers and the general public compelling facts and arguments promoting the vital importance of:

EARLY CAREER FACULTY

Young people often have the most creative ideas, and young scientists are no exception to the rule; RCSA provides much-needed support for this cohort. More

INNOVATIVE IDEAS FOR TRANSFORMATIVE RESEARCH

Most public science funding is risk-averse, often directed at incremental improvement; RCSA embraces risk as it seeks and supports innovative ideas that can change a field. More

INTEGRATION OF RESEARCH AND SCIENCE TEACHING

Students learn best when they engage in research as part of their educational experience; RCSA grant programs support student involvement in faculty research. More

INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH

We face increasingly complex problems which are of global significance; these challenges require interdisciplinary approaches and RCSA supports strategic collaboration across disciplines in each of its programs. More

BUILDING TOMORROW'S ACADEMIC CULTURES

Science must be transformative, integrative and interdisciplinary; RCSA works to ensure America’s academic culture nurtures these qualities. More
