The Social Science Institute for Research, Education, and Policy encourages research and outreach projects that use novel, social science approaches to solving societal, political and policy problems or that facilitate student success in the social sciences. 

The current social and political situation requires social science research to help us emerge as a stronger community, state, nation and world. Social Scientists at URI weigh in on the current socio-political situation with their disciplinary expertise and research. We hope you enjoy these public lectures and research spotlights.
