Institute for the Study of Social Change
The Institute for the Study of Social Change (ISSC), was founded in 1976. In 2009, the university merged ISSC with the Survey Research Center to form the Institute for the Study of Societal Issues. At that time, CRSC was established to carry on the specific social change focus of ISSC.
