We designed the Systems Science for Social Impact Summer Training Institute with three goals:

  • To convene groups of researchers and practitioners who are interested in how systems thinking and system science methods can benefit their work.
  • To introduce and familiarize participants with ABM, SD, or SNA to benefit their work.
  • To provide real-world examples of how systems science is increasing the social impact of research and practice in social work, public health, and social science.
