Name of creator
Established at the University of British Columbia in the late 1950s, the Institute of Social and Economic Research was intended to foster research and graduate study in the social sciences. The Institute, composed of members with diverse backgrounds from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, provided research funds for individual projects and participated in formulating long-term research strategies. In 1962, the name of the body was changed to the Social Science Research Institute and the responsibilities for supporting individual research projects were transferred to the Dean of Graduate Studies' Research Committee.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of minutes, correspondence, reports and constitutions generated by the Social Science Research Institute and its predecessor, the Institute of Social and Economic Research (1958-1963).
