SEASIDE, Ca., April 30, 2019 -- California State University, Monterey Bay’s (CSUMB) James W. Rote Distinguished Professorship in Marine Science & Policy program will host a panel of science policy experts to discuss the changing nature of the science-policy interface in our nation, state and region on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at CSUMB’s Alumni and Visitor Center from 6-8 p.m.

The event, titled “Evolving or Devolving? The Changing Nature of the Science-Policy Interface,” will examine how the role of science in public policy has changed and how it will evolve in the future.

  • Expert panelists include:
    • Fred Keely: Former California State Assembly member.
    • John Laird: Former California Secretary of Natural Resources.
    • Catherine Freeman: Chief Consultant for the California State Assembly Committee on Water, Parks & Wildlife.
Drawing on the deep experience of our three distinguished guests, we will explore how the endeavor of translating science to policy has changed over the years and what the future holds."
CSUMB Marine Science Chair & Rote Professor, James Lindholm.

“It is no secret that the role of science in society, or at least in public policy, has changed in the past few years, particularly at the national level. It has never been more important for us, as scientists and stewards of the environment, to understand the relationship between science and policy, and how to facilitate the integration of the two.” said CSUMB Marine Science Chair & Rote Professor, James Lindholm. “Drawing on the deep experience of our three distinguished guests, we will explore how the endeavor of translating science to policy has changed over the years and what the future holds.”

This presentation is hosted and sponsored by the James W. Rote Distinguished Professorship in Marine Science & Policy.

The Rote Professorship has a strong foundation in the community. It supports annual and recurring events such as the Ocean Candidates Forum, workshops on science communication and invited speakers on a wealth of topics. It also funds undergraduate and graduate students conducting research on applied topics, as well as faculty research being conducted in support of governance at state, federal and international levels.

Hosting open community events is in keeping with CSUMB’s role as a community resource, providing forums for provocative discussions that can impact thought and action on issues important to our community.
