Sociologists Join Board of Social Science Research Council

The Board of Directors of the Manhattan-based Social Science Research Council (SSRC) has recently elected two sociologists to its ranks: Troy Duster and Doug McAdam. They join fellow sociologists Judith Tanur, Cora Marrett (chair), Walter “Woody” Powell, and a number of other prominent social scientists and practitioners from a broad range of disciplines and institutions. The Board regularly reviews the Council’s intellectual programs and elects its president.

Broadly international, the SSRC has worked since 1923 to advance social science research and education, enhance communication among scholars, and bring useful social knowledge to public attention. It is an independent, nongovernmental, not-for-profit organization that seeks to advance social science throughout the world, supporting research, education, and scholarly exchange.
