Kunz Center for Social Research
The Kunz Center for Social Research, housed in the Department of Sociology, has a two-fold mission: 1) support Center faculty and student research, and 2) develop research-related relationships with community organizations. While the Center supports a wide range of research, its activities emphasize the areas of 1) Urban and Race, 2) Family and Gender, and 3) Health. The Center organizes workshops in these research areas, awards small grants for research activities, and provides staff support for the submission of grant proposals.
The Center was established in 1989 and endowed in 1995 by a bequest in honor and memory of Margaret A. Kunz and her parents, Dr. John C. Kunz and Emma B. Kunz. Since that time, the Center has enhanced research among Sociology Department faculty and graduate students, the University of Cincinnati, and broader Cincinnati community.
