We give Earth system science a voice in Washington, and we want to make sure that voice represents the community.

The UASC committee serves as a conduit between UCAR and our university members on public policy issues affecting the health of the Earth system sciences. UASC helps set UCAR's public policy priorities. 


  • Advocate for the atmospheric and related Earth system sciences and demonstrate their value
  • Ensure that UCAR's government relations accurately reflect the interests of the community
  • Facilitate communication on public policy issues among the members, UCAR leadership, and the community
