Federal policy changes and decreased areas of emphasis could affect our SWST organizations. First, the Office of Science and Technology Policy has hardly any employees and science may not have a major voice in the present administration. Also, our immigration policy may affect the number of students in our graduate programs. Foreign students will be looking to attend graduate school in Canada or Europe instead of the US. A major concern is that the use of science will be diminished in the political arena.
