One of the University’s newest centers will act as a matchmaker, pairing faculty in the social sciences with teaching and research partners.

“Social science faculty researching topics ranging from sustainability to economic inequality who are looking for new data resources, novel methods, or statistical consulting to support their work will meet with experts who can serve as partners,” says Deborah Carr, founding director of the new Center for Innovation In Social Science.

A cornerstone initiative of the College of Arts & Sciences strategic plan, the center, which Carr calls “a one-stop shopping point,” will foster interdisciplinary research, team-teaching opportunities, and externally funded projects.
