A primary goal of the CSC is to facilitate the research efforts of our faculty affiliates and help them access the resources and attain the external funding they need to move to the next level with their research programs. The CSC actively supports faculty grant-writing via the initiatives, and currently supports a total of 54 grants, our highest number ever.  We attribute this success primarily to the talents and hard work of the faculty investigative teams, along with the outstanding peer supports and senior mentoring provided by the initiatives and initiative leaders.  In addition, the strong climate of support provided by the College of Liberal Arts and resources provided by the Social Sciences Research Institute each contribute to the faculty team success.

Collaborative Research Initiatives

There are five CSC active research initiatives and also Parents And Children Together (PACT), a CSC Co-sponsored initiative.

Funded Research Projects

The CSC has been highly successful in supporting faculty affiliate grant activity.

Technology-Assisted Research Methods
