CHSS Research

CHSS Research works to facilitate the research, scholarship, and creative works of the college’s scholarly community. We help our community members develop strategies, resources, and connections to seek external funding to support their research and scholarly works. We coordinate internal funding opportunities, charter and coordinate college research centers, and connect our scholars with colleagues across the university to create community and support students.
