From CS3’s Director

In its fifth year, CS3 has raised the visibility and engagement of faculty across the social sciences at UMBC.   We have built a community for faculty, professional staff, students, and alumni.  CS3 offers support in the form of summer fellowships for faculty, small research grants for faculty of all ranks and students of all levels, and working groups for faculty and advanced graduate students.  CS3 offers numerous lectures and workshops connecting the larger UMBC community and off-campus partners.
