Committee on Neuroscience Departments and Programs

The Committee on Neuroscience Departments and Programs (CNDP) enhances the value SfN provides to individual and institutional members (neuroscience departments and programs) through programs, activities, and initiatives that advance higher education and training in neuroscience.

Roles and responsibilities:

  • Oversee the implementation of SfN’s Higher Education and Training Strategy and make recommendations for updates to the strategy.
  • Monitor trends in neuroscience education and training, as well as potential funding and collaboration opportunities.
  • Provide resources and programs to support members engaged in higher education and training, including an annual conference for program directors and faculty, an exhibit booth and reception for neuroscience departments and programs at the SfN annual meeting, a graduate school fair, and a biennial survey and report on trends in neuroscience education.
  • Actively promote Institutional Program (IP) membership, and review and approve requests for new IP membership.
  • Facilitate communication and sharing of information among IP members.
  • Support travel awards for undergraduate students to attend the SfN annual meeting.
  • Engage neuroscience departments and programs in SfN advocacy efforts, including the annual Capitol Hill Day.
  • Serve on the selection committee for the Award for Education in Neuroscience and present the award at the annual meeting.

The Committee on Neuroscience Departments and Program is part of the Professional Development and Training Committee Cluster, which also includes the Professional Development Committee.
