Networking Opportunity in Science Journalism and Academia: NUCSJ

What is NUCSJ? NUCSJ is a consortium of 20 undergraduate journals chiefly interested in STEM research at the undergraduate level. Our mission is three-fold: to create a collaborative network for undergraduate science journalism, initiate conversations about research dissemination, and positively impact future science communicators.  Every year, we host the National Undergraduate Conference on Scientific Journalism. Featuring Pulitzer Prize winners,  New York Times columnists, Nobel Laureates, author professors, and pioneers in research, this event brings together hundreds of student scientists to discuss research practice within the context of publication and student journalism. For 2023, this conference will be held in the fall (date TBA).  Why are we reaching out? We are in the process of recruiting speakers for the conference. We want to diversify the voices on our panels and discussions to engage and connect with the undergraduate student body across different fields and backgrounds. In order to do this, we need your help!  If you have a professor, journalist, scientist, or science communicator (of any form!) in mind, please reach out to nm3307@columbia.edu (Neha Mani, Laidlaw 2022 from Columbia University) and sas2473@barnard.edu (Sarah Sherman)! Even if you don’t have someone particular in mind, if you have an idea for a panel or speaker, send us an email. Additionally, if you are part of an undergraduate research journal at your university and would like to incorporate your journal into our consortium, let us know!  Be on the lookout for an announcement from us regarding the conference date! We hope to see you there.
