Education and Outreach

The Geoscience Synchrotron User Steering Committee is forming an Education and Outreach Committee to guide the vision, proposal writing, and program implementation for education and outreach, as well as belonging, accessibility, justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (BAJEDI) initiatives within the nascent Geoscience Synchrotron User community.

We are looking for individuals interested in joining the committee from the breadth of the Geoscience Synchrotron community including graduate students, post docs, early career scientists, and those whose career paths are more established.

If you are interested in participating in this work or would like to be kept up to date with Committee activities, the following link will bring you to a short questionnaire intended to connect you with the the information and/or opportunities that best match your interests:

Community Activities and Input

Outreach activities include town halls, workshops, and community-wide messages.   Future activities and opportunities for community input will be announced in the coming weeks.
