We make the data.
You change the world.

One of the biggest challenges that data scientists, social scientists and humanists face is harnessing the power of raw data. The Cline Center for Advanced Social Research is positioned to expand your research capacities, giving voice to data by transforming information into knowledge so you can understand—and address—real-world issues that affect the lives of people around the globe.

Improving societies together.
Worldwide.

Understanding complex social problems is easier when data scientists, social scientists, humanists, and difference makers from outside the academy can be assembled around the same table. It also means drawing from diverse methods, theories, and perspectives. At the Cline Center for Advanced Social Research, we’re building an innovative community of researchers who not only pursue collaborative text analytics projects using our data, software, and expertise, but are deeply invested in promoting societal well-being.
