Summer Research Fellows
Research fellowships provide financial support and guidance for students and faculty to design and conduct collaborative summer research that addresses and fosters understanding of persistent social problems.
Summer Research Groups
Research group grants provide funding for groups of students and faculty to conduct collaborative summer research. Student research groups have investigated topics such as religious spaces, mass media and lead exposure.
Course Development Grants
These grants provide support to faculty members who wish to incorporate the theory and practice of social change into their classes, using the lens of transformational leadership and social innovation.
Speaker Series & Programs
The Levitt Center focuses on four areas of scholarship through our lectures and other programming: inequality and equity; justice and security; sustainability; and public health and well-being. By narrowing our focus on these four subjects, we hope to address them in meaningful ways throughout the year.
Public Opinion Polls
Students conduct polls and pilot surveys under the guidance of a faculty member. The more recent final polls were conducted by Knowledge Networks; Zogby International conducted earlier polls.
