Supporting Social Science Initiatives
As part of our strategic plan and focus on research excellence and departmental renewal, each Department in Social Science has identified research specializations.
With support from donors and alumni, we will create a Social Science Distinguished Lecture series. The series will give our Departments, and the Faculty more generally, the capacity to host leading scholars from distant institutions on a regular basis.
NEST, the Network for Economic and Social Trends, will be the centerpiece of interdisciplinary research in the Faculty of Social Science, bringing together experts from the university and beyond to produce policy research to promote economic security and growth.
