Education, Outreach, and Diversity

The CSP implements, facilitates, and fosters a wide range of educational and public outreach activities. Our faculty, researchers, and administrative team work diligently to engage and educate the public on the societal importance of sustainable polymers.


The NSF Center for Sustainable Polymers partners with the Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement (CAREI) to evaluate our education and outreach programs, so that we can continuously work to improve and strengthen the impact of our efforts. CAREI’s mission is to improve the quality of education for all learners through neutral, rigorous research and evaluation of educational contexts and initiatives.

If you have ideas for outreach programs contact the Director of Education, Outreach, and Diversity, Jennifer McCambridge.
