For the greater good

To be holistically engaged in science-and-society matters of regional, national, and/or global relevance requires new approaches to mission, vision, values, and strategy. In the October 4 session, “Science and Society: Illuminating What Matters,” panelists discussed how institutions can start to transform themselves with bold new aims, and perhaps more importantly, what the consequences are of not pressing forward for the greater good.

Here, panelist Emlyn Koster, president & CEO, Liberty Science Center, Jersey City, New Jersey, gives his thoughts on the important role science centers should play in illuminating the larger issues of science and society.
