MindCORE supports a variety of public programs on and off campus to engage the academic community and the public with our research.
Our outreach goals include:
- Enhance public understanding of human intelligence and behavior;
- Broaden participation of young scientists from groups typically underrepresented in cognitive and brain science;
- Inform policy-making across governmental levels with insights about human behavior and decision making;
- Support and encourage faculty and young investigator outreach initiatives in our community; and
- Inspire the next generation of explorers of the mind.
We interview our weekly seminar speakers and post excerpts here–read about their journeys in the field, their research, and their advice!
Need a Scientist?
MindCORE faculty and affiliates are available to meet with different audiences to explain our emerging understanding of how the mind works, including as part of formal lecture series, participating in local science festivals and events, and partnering with local museum and schools.
We are available to cater to the different needs and interests of educators, the media, community partners and the general public. If you are interested in scheduling a workshop or have a guest speaker come to your institution please contact us.
