Iowa Social Science Research Center reformulated as part of Public Policy Center
Under the leadership of the University of Iowa Public Policy Center, the Iowa Social Science Research Center (ISRC) has been reformulated as a campus-wide resource to support social science research. With the assistance of the Office of the Vice President for Research and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the center has expanded its staff and services offered to faculty and students in the social sciences.
Led by Faculty Director Kevin Leicht, the center offers survey data collection services, assistance with finding and securing external funding for research projects, post-award research support, and an environment to explore interdisciplinary research ideas. The Hawkeye Poll is also done in cooperation with ISRC.
Temporarily located in 136 Trowbridge Hall, the ISRC will move to the eighth floor of the Jefferson Building in downtown Iowa City in October. The newly renovated space will house a 26-station call center facility, a high-performance computer cluster with various statistical software packages, staff offices and a staff lounge. The ISRC will be fully operational throughout this transition period.
