The University of Nebraska is a university member of the National Council for Science and the Environment. It is consortium of >170 universities and colleges throughout the US. NCSE is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the scientific basis of environmental decision-making. It seeks to be a bridge that spans the divide between science, its applications, and policy. NCSE specializes in programs that foster collaboration between the diverse institutions and individuals creating and using environmental knowledge to make science useful to policies and decisions on critical environmental issues. We engage scientists, educators, policy-makers, environmental managers, government agencies, conservationists, and business leaders. While an advocate for science and its use, NCSE does not take positions on environmental issues. With a reputation for objectivity and non-partisanship, we are able to provide a neutral forum for all. NCSE assists communities in jointly finding acceptable solutions to complex environmental challenges by using expert facilitation, problem solving processes, and fostering joint implementation. All sciences and technical areas relevant to decisions are recognized as important, including physical, biological, and social sciences, as well as engineering. Research, scientific synthesis and assessment, tools that support decision-making, formal and informal education, communication, are all respected and utilized.
Any member of the UNL community interested in staying informed on these issues is invited to join the list serve. Please feel free to contact UNL representative, Dr. John P Carroll, firstname.lastname@example.org.
