Faculty Resources and Support
Rooted in the Social Sciences Division at UC Santa Cruz, the Institute for Social Transformation supports innovative scholarship that changes the world. The institute is a critical intellectual and social hub, connecting scholars across UC Santa Cruz and partners beyond the University, developing research-based solutions to urgent problems in the world. Below are some of the resources and ways we support UCSC faculty. For more information, please email email@example.com.
The Institute for Social Transformation (IST) is available to support research projects in the public interest that involve UCSC Social Science faculty members. If we are involved in the pre-award process, we can also provide post-award administrative support, event planning, and strategic guidance.

Our faculty workshop series, in collaboration with the UCSC Marketing & Communications team, is intended to support faculty in developing new skills. Past workshops have included topics like designing a faculty website or how to use Twitter as a tool for social impact.
