Our mission is to foster groundbreaking social research that improves the lives of people in North Carolina and around the world. In 2019, the Odum Institute staff provided 2,000+ consultations to 500+ UNC students, faculty, staff and external clients. Our short courses attracted 1,500 attendees from near and far, and our consultants held presentations and workshops in 10 states, 9 countries and 5 continents. Through our extensive support services and resources, we make research more accessible, efficient and productive for Tar Heels from every corner of UNC-Chapel Hill’s campus. When you make a gift to Odum, you ensure that researchers can conduct scientifically rigorous research that contributes to better lives for the citizens of North Carolina and beyond.
Join us as we build a better world, one research question at a time.
