Director's Welcome

Hello and welcome to the Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR) at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. The mission of ISSR is to promote excellence in social science research. We approach that goal with a variety of programs that are designed to: 1) support the development of methodological skills and tools for social scientists, 2) advance the meaningful participation of social scientists in interdisciplinary collaboration, 3) assist in the development of proposals and administration of funded research projects, and 4) promote the visibility of cutting-edge social science research.
