CSBS faculty have significantly increased their efforts to submit research proposals to grant-making organizations over the past few years. In 2009-2010, research proposals increased from $15 million to $30 million – a 98 percent increase. In 2010-2011, research proposals increased to $31.2 million. The increase in submitted research proposals is paying off for the college. Actual funding from the grant proposals currently sits at $6.1 million compared to $3.5 million and $3 million the previous two years.
The college recognized Andrew Jorgenson in sociology and Zachary Zimmer in sociology as junior and senior recipients of the CSBS Superior Research Award. For a list summarizing the research of many of our distinguished faculty please click on the pictures below.
