California Alliance for Hispanic-Serving Social
Science Advancement (CAHSSA)
The California Alliance for Hispanic-serving Social Science Advancement (CAHSSA) is a collaboration among the campuses of the California State University (CSU) and the University of California (UC). CAHSSA works to align social science research initiatives with the Hispanic-serving mission of the majority of institutions of higher education in California.
CAHSSA Focus Areas
Workshops to strengthen research proposal development, proposal writing, and collaboration among faculty and researchers across the social science disciplines.
Provides social science leaders with best practices for incentivizing, recognizing, and rewarding Hispanic-serving, community-based, and de-colonizing approaches to social science inquiry in tenure, promotion, and research professional development and programming.
Research to investigate how social science is constructed, conducted, and taught in Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), and how this may differ from social science research that is typically funded by federal and private grant-making agencies.
