100 years of social and behavioral science in the public interest

The Social Science Research Council was founded in 1923 by visionary representatives from the American Economic Association, American Political Science Association, American Sociological Association, and American Statistical Association. By 1925, representatives from the American Anthropological Association, American Historical Association, and American Psychological Association had joined the Council. For 100 years, the Social Science Research Council has mobilized the research, policy, and philanthropic communities in the search for workable solutions to pressing societal challenges.

Translating research into action

Today, new tools and methods offer new opportunities for policy-relevant and socially useful social and behavioral science. The Council is uniquely positioned to unite the research, policy, and philanthropic communities in the search for interventions and policies that can better support human well-being on a global scale. As the Council enters a new century, this work is more important than ever.

Support the SSRC

At the 100th anniversary of the Council’s founding, we are proud to honor its founders and to celebrate the achievements of policy-relevant and solutions-oriented social and behavioral science. Every month we feature new articles from the most recent issues of each founding association’s flagship journal. Across disciplines, the frontiers of social and behavioral science are rapidly advancing, and with them, our collective capacity to support global well-being.
