The Social Science Research Council’s College and University Fund for the Social Sciences is a consortium of higher education partners providing annual support to the SSRC to enhance the infrastructure of global social science research, catalyze interdisciplinary and cross-institutional collaborations, and help launch the careers of junior scholars through fellowships, workshops, and mentorship.

Held every eighteen to twenty-four months, the College and University Fund Conference provides a rare opportunity for academic leaders to devote a full day to collectively considering shared, fundamental challenges facing the social sciences. The inaugural conference in 2017 focused on the challenge of securing knowledge in the digital and “post truth” age. The conference was central to the development of the SSRC’s Task Force Report, “To Secure Knowledge: Social Science Partnerships for the Public Good.”

The 2019 conference will focus on the present and future of transnational and global research. The agenda is being developed by SSRC leadership in collaboration with the 2019 planning committee, which includes Dean Rachel Croson (Michigan State), Dean Charles Hale (UC Santa Barbara), Dean Kevin McLaughlin (Brown), Deputy Provost Cybele Raver (NYU), and Vice President Celeste Watkins-Hayes (Northwestern).

One representative from each partner institution is invited to attend.
