Two of the seven primary goals of all Nu Rho Psi chapters are:

  • increase public awareness of neuroscience and its benefits for the individual and society and…

  • encourage service to the community.

In a recent post in NEURONLINE – the Society for Neuroscience, their is a description of the outreach programming that was developed at Carnegie Mellon University by Meredith Schmehl (currently a Ph.D. candidate at Duke University). The program was featured at the 2018 SFN meeting and in the video of the SFN workshop presentation – Bringing a Student-Run Outreach program to Your Institution.

Here is the link to the  NEURONLINE article: Start and Lead a Student Outreach Group at Your Institution

If your chapter has developed some successful outreach programs, consider sharing them with the Nu Rho Psi Council .  Remember, chapters may apply for annual activity grants for co-curricular  programs associated with the annual Nu Rho Psi theme.

The 2019-2020 Theme is Brain/Machine Interfaces
