The Odum Institute for Research in Social Science cover
Mission Our mission is to help grow and lead a world-class social science research infrastructure at UNC Chapel Hill to ensure that researchers can conduct scientifically rigorous research that contributes to better lives for the citizens of North Carolina and the world. The Institute enables researchers at UNC to produce important research, helps them broaden the scope and impact of their research, and contributes to the training of the next generation of leaders and researchers in social science.
Description Founded in 1924, the Odum Institute supports the social science teaching and research mission at UNC. We provide a range of consulting services on quantitative and qualitative methods, GIS and spatial analysis, survey research, and data management. We offer more than 70 workshops every year, a graduate certificate program in Survey Research Methods, and a number of summer courses through ICPSR and for graduate students from underrepresented groups through NSF’s AGEP program. We operate a world-renowned data archive that continues to be a leader in archive tool and support development. We help researchers develop grant proposals and we provide full pre- and post-award support. We work aggressively to help bring teams of scholars together in part through our annual interdisciplinary seed grant competition. We also partner with other scholars, research teams, and Centers and Institutes to pursue research grants consistent with our mission.
