Welcome to the Steven Cruz Institute for Media, Science + Technology

As science and technology continue to evolve and alter the ways in which we interact with each other, it is crucial that we develop innovative ways to communicate the often complicated and politicized issues that face our society. With this challenge in mind, the efforts of the Steven Cruz Institute for Media, Science + Technology (SCI) are aimed at improving public understanding of science and technology.

SCI supports interdisciplinary research and education as well as strategic media campaigns that connect top communication professionals and researchers with scientists and technology experts— with the ultimate goal of highlighting the connections that exist between us all.

By creating a space for these unique collaborations, the institute strives to strengthen our society through the very issues that stand to divide it.
