Since it's creation in 2007, the Institute for Society, Culture and Environment has helped social science and humanities research at Virginia Tech flourish. ISCE was founded to support Virginia Tech's focus on cutting-edge research, assisting in understanding and addressing critical and emerging issues at the societal and individual levels. ISCE strives to foster a creative, interactive, and multidisciplinary environment for intellectually important research and creative effort in the social sciences and humanities.
