About the chapter

San Diego SSN unites area scholars with expertise that focus on both the unique challenges facing San Diegans, as well as the concerns of Americans across the country. Our focus areas include diversity in politics and civil society, contributions and challenges of immigration, limits and possibilities of science education, and job creation in the high-tech economy. Other areas of interest include tax policy, corporate governance, the role of partisanship and expertise in American politics, and workforce equality.
