Developing practical solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems

The Yankelovich Center for Social Science Research aims to find solutions to America's most important problems. In pursuing this mission, the Center currently is proceeding along three related paths.

  • It has formed a commission to recommend evidence-based strategies for increasing upward mobility.
  • It provides seed funding for projects by UC San Diego researchers that show promise of significant national impact.
  • It sponsors a discussion series on mobility, opportunity, inequality, education, politics, and policy.
