Rapid advances in digital technology have led to sweeping changes across the globe in almost every facet of people’s daily lives. Social and behavioral science is uniquely positioned to identify the consequences of these advances and how they can be optimized to improve society. Technological advances also create innovative methodological tools that can move social and behavioral science forward.

The Center for Social & Behavioral Science is committed to supporting research at the intersection of technology and social issues. Our campus offers an unparalleled nexus for such research given the expertise in not only social and behavioral science, but also information and computer sciences as well as engineering.
