The Institute of Human Development and Social Change (IHDSC) is a joint initiative of the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development; the Wagner School of Public Service; the Faculty of Arts and Sciences; and the Office of the Provost. With a total portfolio of over $30 million in active federally and privately funded research grants, IHDSC is the largest interdisciplinary research center on the NYU Washington Square Campus.
The Institute supports more than 40 faculty affiliates from the social, behavioral, and health sciences in performing cutting edge research to study how complex social forces such as globalization, technology, and immigration affect human development. IHDSC brings together an interdisciplinary network of faculty, researchers, and students, through the Seminar Series, annual conferences, and externally funded research projects. In addition, the Institute directly collaborates across academic units to host the IES-funded Predoctoral Interdisciplinary Training Program, which provides doctoral students with intensive training in quantitative research methods in the education sciences.
