The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) advances inquiry and teaching about our shared humanity and experiences, and engages scholars from across the college and university, and with external collaborators to address humanistic and social issues from a variety of perspectives. The CHSS Research team in the Dean's Office works to showcase and support the research, scholarship and creative works (RSCW) across the college. We work to provide support and guidance related to externally funded research, chartered research centers, and many college and university funded initiatives.
Our CHSS Pre-Award Research Administrators work with those interested in securing external funding for their research, scholarship and creative works. Drawing upon best practices in research development and research administration, CHSS Research provides tools and resources to develop competitive applications that convey the importance and timeliness of the proposed work. We also coordinate with CHSS Post-Award, and with Mason's Office of Sponsored Programs to facilitate and streamline this important avenue of support for our researchers.
