Mission Statement, adopted Jan. 2017:
SCONC is a North Carolina-based volunteer organization that connects educators, practitioners, students and consumers of science communication. We develop, support, and promote high-quality science communication through digital media, and social and professional gatherings. We place a high premium on creating lively social engagements that draw on the passion of our members. We rely on the time, skills, and expert opinions of our members to guide decisions about our programs.
Through these principles, we aim to:
1) Strengthen the discipline and occupation of science communication
2) Create a more science-savvy public
3) Establish a healthier, safer, more environmentally sustainable, and economically successful society
SCONC will be recognized as a national leader in the development and distribution of science communication tools, techniques, and talent.
