The College of Humanities and Social Sciences is proud to be home to a number of active research centers. The centers serve to organize much of our research and scholarship around specific focal areas and help to foster collaborative research among faculty. College-chartered research centers are chartered or rechartered in accordance with university policy.
In the 2019-2020 research center review cycle, two new research centers were chartered by CHSS.

Peter Mandaville (firstname.lastname@example.org), Director
Huseyin Yilmaz, Research Director (email@example.com)
Edward Wile Maibach, Director (firstname.lastname@example.org)
T. Mills Kelly, Interim Executive Director (email@example.com)
Amy Best, Director (firstname.lastname@example.org)
James Witte, Director (email@example.com)
Andrew Light, Director (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Daniel Houser, Director (email@example.com)
As a result of the 2019-2020 research center rechartering review, two centers affirmed their mission as primarily that of community engagement, educational or cultural, and are departmentally situated as of Academic Year 2020-2021.
These two centers join the academic tradition of departmental centers that are community engaged, public service oriented or devoted to research training and education, such as the Center for Psychological Services, the Center for Economic Education, and departmental research labs, research groups or centers.
