Our mission is to maintain an effective partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy, the
Laboratory, and the community to address issues that may affect community members’ quality of life. We strive
to provide opportunities for Lab employees to make a positive impact by volunteering their time and talent.
Formed in 1998 to advise the Laboratory Director on selected issues, particularly those
involving environment, safety, and health, the Community Advisory Council represents
a diverse range of interests and values of individuals and groups interested in or affected
by the actions of the Laboratory.
Every year, Brookhaven National Laboratory opens its gates to thousands of community members
for its annual open house events, called Summer Sundays. Each Sunday focuses on a different facility and
field of research. The day is filled with free tours, shows, and hands-on
activities related to discoveries happening at Brookhaven.
PubSci lets you chat with expert scientists over a drink. See the casual side of cutting-edge
research and scientific discovery happening every day at Brookhaven National Lab. This series
hops around Long Island covering different topics from the Big Bang to tomorrow’s technologies.
Brookhaven National Laboratory’s scientists, natural resource specialists, science educators, and
community engagement professionals are pleased to share their expertise about a wide variety of topics.
Speakers are available free of charge and are selected based on the needs of the public and the
availability of the speakers bureau professionals.
Lab employees donate their time and talent to a variety of volunteer organizations that make a positive
impact in their communities. Whether it’s participating in blood drives, volunteering at their
local Fire Department, building a home through Habitat for Humanity, or helping to clean a beach,
Brookhaven’s employees are neighbors helping neighbors.
