Why donate to the CSSP? How does it develop leadership skills? In the words of one of our recent Board Members, a physicist who has served as the Research VP of a Fortune 100 company, as a University President, as a Chairman of the National Science Board, and as a Chairman of a National Academy:
“CSSP is uniquely effective in these areas: perpetually enhancing leadership skills development and practice in the science community; bringing top leaders in government, business, humanities and science into engaging discussions with all of us who are members on important new ideas at every meeting; broadening the knowledge of science leaders in important ideas outside areas of prior expertise, in ways that improve their own decision making; perpetually learning about the most significant evidence about leadership excellence from the best and most creative thinkers and leaders; developing an active network of past and present national leaders in science; stimulating collaboration among the various scientific disciplines; defining key issues affecting health of science and national science policy and taking effective strategic action on them.”
The CSSP, a 501(c)(3), gratefully accepts tax-deductible donations from those who want to support our principles, goals, and activities.
