New Interdisciplinary Scholar Networks to build better social welfare research
Date:6/8/2011

Building on the eminent interdisciplinary tradition at the University of Chicago, the School of Social Service Administration has launched a new initiative that will take its multidisciplinary problem-solving approach to a new level. The new Interdisciplinary Scholar Network initiative at SSA will bring together scholars across disciplinary and professional lines to generate innovative and more comprehensive knowledge aimed at addressing some of society's most intractable social problems.

SSA's more than century-long tradition draws from the work of great scholars and practitioners who use a diverse set of lenses to tackle problems social workers persistently face, such as poverty, violence, homelessness or mental illness. Problems like these are not easily understood from within a single disciplinary vantage point, nor quickly resolved with a limited "toolbox" of interventions. Building on SSA's distinctive tradition, this initiative will convene scholars and leaders across the country to generate more systematic solutions to such problems.

"There is no question that our deeply embedded interdisciplinary culture at SSA will provide a fertile platform from which to launch more robust scholarship yielding greater benefit to society," says Neil Guterman, dean of SSA and the Mose & Sylvia Firestone Professor. "And the scholar network vehicle will help catalyze the development and translation of new scholarship so that it can more readily be put into practicein the field and in the classroom."

SSA faculty will lead the networks, which will be anchored at SSA and will bring together many of the nation's intellectual and professional leaders in social welfare to generate evidence-based solutions with tangible impact. This past winter, Guterman solicited and received a wide array of proposals from SSA faculty to establish new networks. SSA will provide initial support to launch two of the proposed networks, slated to begin their work duri
