Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society

Many of the most important questions we need to ask about ourselves and about our world require multiple approaches and methodologies and cannot be well addressed without understanding their social and cultural contexts. The Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society creates new opportunities for faculty in the social sciences and humanities to work together—with each other, with colleagues in other fields, and with leading researchers from around the world.

Part research incubator and part institute for advanced studies, the Neubauer Collegium combines robust support for collaborative faculty research with a fellowship program designed to bring leading scholars and practitioners from around the world for sustained collaboration with research teams at the University of Chicago. Founded in 2012, the Neubauer Collegium is already enabling innovative research collaborations on complex questions and facilitating the exchange of knowledge across disciplinary, institutional, and national boundaries. Since the Neubauer Collegium was established, it has launched 33 ambitious and innovative research projects led by UChicago research teams involving faculty from every discipline in the social sciences and humanities, as well as faculty from Argonne National Laboratory, the Division of Biological Sciences, Chicago Booth, the Divinity School, the Law School, the Pritzker School of Medicine, Chicago Harris, and the School of Social Service Administration.

Your investment in the Neubauer Collegium will enable faculty to launch and refine innovative research collaborations on complex questions that transcend any individual scholar or discipline; integrate social, scientific, and humanistic research with complementary research projects across and beyond the academic world; and continue to bring global research leaders to Chicago.
