Scholars Strategy Network

The Scholars Strategy Network (SSN) seeks to improve public policy and strengthen democracy by connecting scholars and their research to policymakers, citizens associations, and the media. SSN members believe that university scholars should share their work with fellow citizens – and they endeavor to further good public policymaking and responsive democratic government.

The Scholars Strategy Network is a nationwide, voluntary, interdisciplinary membership organization for academics. The network is comprised of more than 800 scholars from more than 200 colleges, universities, and research institutions in 44 states.

Scholars organize in 31 regional chapters across the nation, including an active and growing Indiana Chapter, led by Purdue University’s Dr. Rosalee Clawson (clawsonr@purdue.edu) and Dr. Leigh Raymond (lraymond@purdue.edu).
