Founded in 2004, the Institute for the Social Sciences encourages collaborative research among social scientists and other Cornell faculty members across the university on cutting-edge research topics within the social sciences. Through three signature programs — Collaborative Projects, Small Grants, and Faculty Fellows — the ISS fosters systematic, evidence-based, and interdisciplinary knowledge of social processes to address critical concerns. The ISS also strives to recruit and retain top social science faculty at Cornell. We build intellectual and administrative connections across campus, such as in the area of computational social science.
