The Center for Social Development is led by Founding Director Michael Sherraden. The Research Director is Shenyang Guo, and the Associate Director is Michal Grinstein-Weiss. The center relies upon a diverse, dedicated and talented Core Staff.
Our efforts are organized around areas of work led by CSD Faculty Directors, who hold appointments at Washington University’s Brown School and other prominent institutions around the globe. The center’s broad reach can also be seen in research collaborations and contributions of CSD’s Faculty Associates, who also hold appointments at top colleges and universities around the world. The center’s Project Directors lead in implementing and managing CSD’s research. The center receives crucial project and research support from master’s and doctoral students who serve as Research Associates and Assistants.
