CHSS Research

Faculty and staff in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences engage in research, analysis and creative work that address essential questions about our lives and our world. The college's range is wide, from traditional humanities such as English and philosophy to interdisciplinary social sciences such as bio-archaeology and neuroscience.  Particularly strong in interdisciplinary scholarship, the college addresses fundamental questions about human life and value in order to provide cutting-edge solutions to pressing social problems.


The CHSS Research team (see contacts in right sidebar) seeks to provide CHSS faculty and staff  with the support they need to be successful in their research and scholarship endeavors.


For a terrific overview of CHSS research, see the CHSS Research Council Presentation from October 2019.
