Mission Statement

Bird at the lagoon

ISBER's primary mission is to facilitate and enable social science research.  This is accomplished by providing: 1) efficient pre-award through post-award grants administration, 2) research development assistance and stimulation through consultations and a small grants program, and 3) high level research services that are most efficiently delivered through an ORU to a broad audience faculty, researchers, and graduate students.  ISBER also fosters and supports topical research communities in the form of several research centers, programs, and outreach activities housed within the unit.
