About the Systems Change Lab

The Systems Change Lab (SCL) is a team of multi-disciplinary research scientists, associates, and staff who address complex societal problems through data analysis, policy research, training/education, and systems change methodologies, including collective impact.

SCL researchers receive support in part from the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station

Housed at the Social Science Research Center (SSRC), SCL projects mobilize the multifaceted resources of the SSRC to address issues of early childhood, structural inequities, the environment, public health, and education, among others. 

The SSRC reports to both the Division of Agriculture, Forestry, and Veterinary Medicine  and the Office of Research and Economic Development on MSU’s campus.
