WELCOME! The Science, Technology, and Society Initiative (STS) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst was established to promote multidisciplinary collaboration among the natural, physical and social sciences, engineering and public policy. Located within the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (CSBS) and administratively based in the Center for Public Policy and Administration (CPPA), the STS Initiative serves as a catalyst for innovative research as well as an interdisciplinary forum to discuss issues in science and technology. The STS Initiative provides a single point of contact for campus-wide faculty collaborations, enabling effective teaming on new proposals and initiatives. Our website describes the STS Initiative, our affiliated researchers, and our sponsored research projects. It is also meant to point students, faculty and others to the rich resources on campus related to science, technology and society.
