The Social Science Research Commons (SSRC) is the culmination of five years of planning to stimulate, coordinate, and sustain social science research on the Bloomington campus. Thanks to the commitment of the College, OVPR, Office of the Provost, and OVPIT, our centrally-located space has been renovated and upgraded to provide a state-of-the-art facility for social scientists. The SSRC is jointly funded by OVPRthe College of Arts and Sciences, the O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, the School of Informatics and Computing, the School of Education, and the School of Public Health.
