Today's big challenges require solutions where disciplines work together to meet human needs.
By bringing a community of faculty scholars, graduate and undergraduate students, community partners and policy makers together, the College of Social and Behavioral Science is producing knowledge and training that will provide lasting solutions to the world's toughest challenges.
Youth in Action! East High and Tanner Center Unite!
East High students learned about the history of human rights and of the United Nations thanks to the Tanner Center for Human rights. They then participated in discussions designed to deepen their understanding of human rights around the world, locally and personally.
Air Quality Research at the U
Sara Grineski (sociology & environmental and sustainability) stated: "not everyone has the same opportunities to protect themselves in terms of where they live or work. It doesn’t matter if it is a red air quality day—landscapers (for example) have to be outside working."
'Parking lot suicides' at VA hospitals prompt calls for better training & prevention
Craig Bryan (psychology) who studies veteran suicides stated: "There are some VAs that are out of date. They are depressing. Others are stunning and new, and if you walk into one that's awe-inspiring, it gives you hope."
Congrats to Ivan Mendieta-Muñoz, Codrina Rada and Rudi von Arnim (Economics) were recently awarded a grant from the Institute for New Economic Thinking, or INET for their research “The decline of the US labor share across sectors and states: 1948-2017”.
