Welcome to Connecticut SSN

About the chapter

Connecticut SSN brings together a vibrant, engaged group of scholars from disciplines ranging from African American studies to political science to medicine to sociology. Although interested in a broad range of public policies, we focus particularly on challenges in three areas: economic and social inequality, health and health care, and criminal justice and child welfare.
