Mission Statement

Bird at the lagoon

While most other ORUs have a relatively well-defined identity forged around a common research specialization, since its inception, ISBER has been intentionally organized to serve a broad range of interests, promoting interdisciplinary work that often blurs the boundaries among the social sciences, the humanities, the behavioral sciences, and, in some cases, the physical and life sciences. In this regard ISBER has played a crucial role in efficiently administering contracts and grants which otherwise would have encountered difficulty if housed elsewhere.
