What do chief science officers do?
On campus, CSOs will serve as the
STEM voice for their
student body, identifying opportunities for their school such
as programs, speakers, workshops, field trips, science nights,
and clubs and ensure such experiences reflect interests of
their peers. They will serve as the school's external point
of contact and streamline the ability for the STEM-based
organizations to meaningfully connect with their school.
Off campus, CSOs will serve as an ambassador helping to
communicate STEM happenings with the community, building
partnerships and advocating future opportunities with local
business and industry and participating in important state
level workforce conversations related to STEM and education.
In addition, they will team will their CSO peers as part of
a state-level cabinet.
