In 2016, the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) revived its history of hosting summer institutes. Prior CASBS summer institutes had transformative effects on a variety of social science fields, including behavioral economics, contentious politics, and economic sociology. The 2016 institute on “Organizations and Their Effectiveness” re-engaged this legacy, earning well-deserved attention from Stanford News.

In 2019, “Organizations and Their Effectiveness” is returning for its fourth consecutive year, from July 8 to July 20. An important aspect of the institute is that it is interdisciplinary, assembling a cohort of highly promising young researchers (ranging from late-stage graduate students to advanced assistant professors) from a wide variety of fields and universities. All participants have demonstrated not only an ability to study organizations from within their own discipline, but also an interest in and an aptitude for expanding their thinking about organizations beyond their own discipline. In addition to the summer institute, there are now spring convocations that integrate the different summer cohorts with each other.

The Center is proud to acknowledge the co-sponsors of the 2019 summer institute and spring convocation: the Stanford Graduate School of Business, the Hoover Institution,
the MIT Sloan School of Management, and CASBS board member Paul Ricci.

From a highly competitive pool of over 130 applicants, institute co-directors Bob Gibbons (Sloan School of Management and Economics, MIT; CASBS fellow 1994-95 and 2014-15) and Woody Powell (Graduate School of Education and Sociology, Stanford; CASBS fellow 1986-87 and 2008-09) are pleased to announce the 2019 class.
