…Imagine a place where great minds are brought together to confront the problems of the day, where original interdisciplinary thinking is the norm, where ideas can change our world. The Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) is such a place. As technologies have become smarter, and as globalization, immigration, and other events transform social practices, behavioral science is increasingly important for predicting future developments and understanding their impact. At CASBS, we make behavioral science relevant.

The CASBS was founded in 1954, and has hosted generations of scholars and scientists who come for a year as Fellows. Former Fellows include 22 Nobel Laureates, 14 Pulitzer Prize winners, 44 winners of MacArthur “Genius Awards,” and hundreds of members of the National Academies. Fellows have played key roles in starting new fields, ranging from cognitive science to behavioral economics to the sociology of urban poverty, and have developed new policies and practices in fields as diverse as medicine, education, electoral politics, Third World development, and crime prevention. Fellows often have worked most effectively as part of a group that is dedicated to addressing a specific problem. We build on that tradition, and now not only invite groups who have their own agenda but also identify specific problems and recruit appropriate scientists and scholars to be members of groups that address these problems.
