Training Researchers

SSN is committed to helping scholars connect with stakeholders and promote the use of research in the policy debate. We frequently offer trainings with chapters and other academic networks, developed and hosted by our expert staff.


Policy Workshops

Our policy workshops teach concrete skills for engaging in the public policy process. Each workshop pairs presentations of content by SSN staff with interactive elements that help scholars learn and apply the skillset. There is always time for questions and specific feedback. The workshops can be done virtually or in-person and are suitable for scholars at any stage in their career.

These trainings combine presentations from experienced SSN staff with interactive learning. Each training requires approximately 2 hours, though they can be extended and customized based on specific preferences and needs.
