The National Council for Science and the Environment

The National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that aims to improve the scientific basis for environmental decisionmaking. We convene diverse leaders in interdisciplinary research, education, policy, and business to strengthen the role of science and higher education in policy through our three main focus areas: Research and Education, Leadership and Community, and Policy and Decisionmaking.

NCSE specializes in programs that foster collaboration between the diverse institutions and individuals creating and using environmental knowledge, including research, education, environmental, and business organizations as well as governmental bodies at all levels. We work collectively to make science relevant to real world decisionmaking on critical environmental challenges. While an advocate for science and its use, NCSE does not take positions on environmental issues. With a longstanding reputation for objectivity and non-partisanship, we are able to provide a neutral forum for all.

The NCSE Student Network is a new initiative that invests in and strengthen support for today’s students – across disciplines, geography, and institutional levels – to cultivate their interest in science, service, and the environment.

Students will join the network as individual members with exclusive access to:

  • Representation and voice across the NCSE network and beyond;
  • Mentoring, career development opportunities and other resources;
  • Participation and leadership in NCSE events.
