The Institute for Social Science Research strengthens existing social science infrastructure at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in order to promote high-quality scholarship. ISSR hosts hands-on training and in-depth research methods seminars for faculty and graduate students. We help campus researchers develop grant proposals, manage post-award logistics, and promote the findings of innovative social science research through communication and outreach.
