Assistant Professor Gathering | May 2

The Center for Social & Behavioral Science (CSBS) invited assistant professors in the social and behavioral sciences at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign to a gathering to connect, collaborate, and share perspectives. 

A key goal for CSBS is to foster community and promote research collaborations among our social and behavioral science faculty. The gathering was an opportunity for Assistant Professors to get to know one another and learn more about how CSBS can help them in the research.    

Attendees were able to: 

  • Present on their current research, future research directions, and methodological approaches  
  • Connect with colleagues with similar interests  
  • Talk with CSBS team members to learn about how CSBS can facilitate their research
