Affiliate Program

The Center for Social & Behavioral Science (CSBS) Affiliates program brings together social and behavioral science researchers from diverse disciplines across the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. The goal of the program is to foster mutually beneficial collaborations allowing CSBS and its affiliates to advance knowledge and methods in the social and behavioral sciences while addressing societal needs.

What are the benefits of becoming a CSBS affiliate?

The CSBS Affiliate program enhances the visibility of the innovative social and behavioral science on our campus. It also affords affiliates several benefits:

  • Access to CSBS network, relationship-building, and professional development opportunities
  • Opportunities for cross-disciplinary connection and collaboration
  • Priority access to CSBS’ public engagement, research promotion, and communication resources
  • Input on new directions and services at CSBS via our annual survey
  • Collaboration with CSBS on new initiatives

Who is eligible to be a CSBS Affiliate?

CSBS Affiliate appointments may be given to:

  • Tenure track faculty
  • Non-tenure track faculty (i.e., adjunct faculty, specialized faculty, research faculty)
  • Research staff (e.g., academic professionals involved in research)

To be an Affiliate you must be actively engaged in social and behavioral science research and have had some type of involvement with CSBS (e.g., attended SBS events, met with a member of the CSBS team, applied for a CSBS small grant, been part of a CSBS working group, or served on a CSBS advisory board).

CSBS Affiliation is open only to individuals employed by the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

What are the expectations of a CSBS Affiliate?

CSBS Affiliates are expected to be active participants in the social and behavioral science community across campus. Affiliates are also expected to complete a brief annual CSBS Affiliate Survey to help CSBS identify the priorities and needs of CSBS Affiliates and the greater social and behavioral science community on campus.
