Community Engagement Fellows Program (CEFP) Advocacy / Ambassador Program Survey


Woodley, Lou et al. (2020), Community Engagement Fellows Program (CEFP) Advocacy / Ambassador Program Survey, Dryad, Dataset,


“Advocacy programs” are ways that organizations empower community members to become more active in moving forward that community’s mission. These go by many names – fellows, ambassadors, champions, and more. With so many different uses, advocacy programs are central to many scientific communities and could help others better achieve their goals. The goal of this dataset was to help gain a stronger understanding of what makes a successful advocacy/ambassador program at scientific communities.


This dataset contains a survey hosted on SurveyMonkey that was circulated to professionals who host and manage advocacy/ambassador/champion/etc. programs in science and technology communities, as well as the responses they gave. More information at


Note: The AAAS Community Engagement Fellowship Program (CEFP) is funded thanks to the generous support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The Advocacy Ninjas Project Team from the 2017 cohort was responsible for this work to assess community advocacy programs within science.
