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 strives to create links and idea exchanges with regional change agents in the nonprofit, government and business sectors.
The Yankelovich Center for Social Science Research was created in 2012. It was made possible through a generous gift and continued financial support from Daniel Yankelovich. Since 2016 it has received additional financial support from UC San Diego.
