UC Davis Institute for Social Science holds inaugural conference series

The Institute for Social Science inaugural conference series Leading Research in the Social Sciences Today was featured in The Aggie.

The UC Davis Institute for Social Science inaugural conference series will host its final event this Friday on “Social Networks in Decision Making.”
