Update – October 1, 2017 

Consistently ranked among the top ten social science research universities in the world and home to 26 Nobel Prize recipients, the Division of Social Sciences is at the vanguard of inquiry and impact. Whether through the field-defining scholarship of the Chicago Schools in Sociology and Economics, the path-breaking impact of the first graduate international affairs program in the U.S., the creation of interdisciplinary programs in the Department of Comparative Human Development and the John U. Nef Committee on Social Thought, or many other pivotal milestones, the Division has repeatedly transformed the social sciences since its founding in 1930.

The University of Chicago Campaign: Inquiry and Impact, the most ambitious and comprehensive campaign in the University’s history, will raise $5 billion and engage 125,000 alumni to support faculty and researchers, practitioners and patients, and students and programs across the University.

With your support, the Division of the Social Sciences will continue to be a keystone of academic achievement at the University, affecting the world at large as it anticipates and reacts to emerging needs in a quickly changing discipline.

The Division of the Social Sciences campaign goal is now $240 million. Progress towards the goal, as of September 30, 2017, totals $205 million. This extraordinary accomplishment is possible through the support of alumni and other friends. Please join in our efforts by making a gift today.
