Transforming information into knowledge
that advances human flourishing.

What do changes in rainfall have to do with gender equity and political violence in Africa? And how does that affect a US company’s bottom line? Quite a bit, if you’re analyzing decades of raw text. In fact, you may be able to draw connections among rainfall and migration, famine, terrorist activity, and societal unrest.

The Cline Center for Advanced Social Research needs your help to find those connections more effectively and to translate academic insight into actionable knowledge. Maybe you could introduce us to a difference-maker in government or the private sector who could benefit from what we’re learning. Maybe you could mention us to a student attending the University of Illinois whose heart is set on using their new knowledge to make the world a better place. Maybe you’re in a position to contribute financially to our mission, or to attend one of our events so you can learn more about what we do. However you’re able, we hope you’ll join us in our mission of transforming information into knowledge that advances human flourishing.
