Social Science Research Services (SSRS) serves social science researchers in the College of Letters & Science at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. SSRS provides specialized, high-quality services to advance interdisciplinary social science research on the UW campus. SSRS provides an administrative umbrella to coordinate a variety of service-providing units. Any social science researcher or unit wishing to use the services provided by SSRS may contact us for support.
SSRS staff help researchers ease the administrative burdens that stem from extramural research funding by preparing and submitting grant applications and providing post-award financial management and support for compliance issues related to research.
SSRS provides a full range of computing services for social science research through the Social Science Computing Cooperative (SSCC). SSCC combines powerful computing and statistical software resources with a professional staff.
