This report has been prepared at the request of the Associate Vice Chancellor
for Research as part of the periodic review of the Institute of Governmental
Affairs (IGA) to be conducted in the 2007-2008 academic year. In accordance with
systemwide policy, the report summarizes the institute’s original purpose,
activities and accomplishments for the period 2001-2002 to 2006-2007, and
future plans and continuing developments to meet the needs of the fields the
institute serves. The institute was charged with consulting broadly in the
preparation of this report, and the input received from faculty participants in the
ORU has provided invaluable assistance in shaping the report that follows (see
Future Directions below for more specific information in this regard).
Original Purpose and Present Functioning
The Institute of Governmental Affairs was established in 1962. It was the third
organized research unit of its type in the University of California system, the
Institute of Governmental Studies at UC Berkeley having been established in 1919,
and the Institute of Government and Public Affairs at UCLA in 1962. The initial
expectation was that IGA would perform research for the state government,
especially the legislature. This expectation was not fulfilled, in large part because
the state developed its own internal research capabilities at about the same time.
Nevertheless, for two decades IGA remained an interdisciplinary group of
scholars undertaking studies narrowly focused on state and local government.
In 1983, a committee was appointed “to review organized research in the social
sciences and recommend changes aimed at strengthening this research and
extending its scope.” 1 In 1984, after an in-depth review process, the committee
recommended “the formation of an umbrella agency with administrative
responsibility for all organized research in the social sciences.” 2 The campus
administration adopted that recommendation, a new director was appointed, and
IGA changed course to support a far broader spectrum of social sciences research.
Where the initial focus for the institute was largely on California state and local
government and politics with research primarily disseminated only through
internal publications programs, the institute now sought to support a much
broader range of social science research, including public policy-relevant
research of international, national, and sub-national importance. IGA no longer
“published” the majority of work conducted under its auspices. The primary
venues for dissemination became the top scholarly outlets in the respective fields.
For a sense of the volume and caliber of faculty research supported by IGA,
consult the Web pages of individual faculty who participate in the institute (see Since the 1980s, most of the work supported by
the institute has focused on public policy issues, but the institute also provides
support to the broader social science community on the campus as appropriate. In

    U.C. Davis. Institute of Governmental Affairs. Twenty-first Annual Report, 1983-84, p.1.

addition, while much of the research currently conducted under the auspices of
the institute employs statistical methods, and some of IGA’s services are geared
specifically to the support of quantitative research, the institute also supports
theoretical and qualitative projects in the social sciences and in particular seeks
to foster scholarly communication and research that spans disciplinary and
methodological boundaries.
The current mission of the Institute of Governmental Affairs is to promote
research, graduate training, and public service in the social sciences. The
institute strives to enrich the intellectual life of the campus through its research
programs and public affairs activities. It serves as a locus for interdisciplinary
activities in the social sciences. With its limited discretionary funds, the institute
seeks to seed new and promising research initiatives. The institute also provides
an array of specialized support services not available elsewhere on campus and
targeted to the needs of social science researchers. These services include grant
advising, preparation, and management; library and data services; social science
computing, programming, and statistical consulting; and event coordination. IGA
services have been essential to the recruitment and retention of top social
scientists over the past decade, as well as to the development of strong core
departments and interdisciplinary initiatives in the social sciences. For more
information on faculty participation in IGA, consult the Web site at The institute incorporates input from faculty in
managing and prioritizing of its programs and services. In addition to the
Advisory Committee appointed by the Vice Chancellor for Research, the institute
utilizes several committees to provide feedback and to allocate resources. The
membership of these committees over the review period is provided as
Appendix 1.
Activities and Accomplishments during the Review Period
IGA Centers and Programs
The institute houses a number of formal research programs. IGA programs are
developed in response to faculty initiatives and interests and are established and
discontinued as needs and interests change and evolve. Over the review period,
five IGA programs were eliminated or combined with other programs. These
were: the Asian Economic Panel, the Center on Social Sciences and the Law, the
Joint Center for International and Security Studies, the Program on Technology,
Institutions, and Economic Growth, and the Program on Welfare, Education and
Economic Growth. The decisions to combine or eliminate these programs were
based upon changes in the interests and activities of participating faculty or the
need to eliminate overlap and duplication with other programs.
During this review period, IGA developed two collaborative partnerships with the
Division of Social Sciences (DSS), providing a home base and logistic support to two
interdisciplinary programs funded by the division. These partnerships capitalize on
the strength of the institute’s services, in particular program development and
event coordination services and its role as an interdisciplinary hub in the social

sciences. As of 2002-03, IGA became the home for the division’s longstanding
program on Economy, Justice and Society (EJS). EJS has pursued several research
agendas over the years and since its move to IGA has focused on the social,
cultural, and political influences on the economic success of individuals and
groups. During the review period, the program was initially headed by Gregory
Clark of Economics and is currently headed by Marianne Page of Economics. The
EJS program director is assisted by a faculty committee appointed by the College
of Letters & Science. EJS enjoys active interdisciplinary participation from the
departments of economics, political science, and sociology. EJS activities include
a graduate student retreat, a seminar series, and a spring conference focused on a
theme of interdisciplinary interest. Under Greg Clark’s leadership, the EJS
program was used as a vehicle for the submission of several grant proposals for
interdisciplinary work on the determinants of economic success. IGA also served
as the base for the Center on Quantitative Social Science Research (CQSSR).
This program, established in 2001, grew out of the Quantitative Social Sciences
Initiative. It was initially headed by Keith Widaman of Psychology and then by
Colin Cameron of Economics. As with EJS, the CQSSR program director was
assisted by a faculty committee appointed by the College of Letters & Science.
The program hosted a number of seminars and workshops on topics of interest to
quantitatively focused researchers and played a formal role in the recruitment of
new faculty hired across the campus as part of the quantitative initiative. The
program became inactive in 2006-07 upon the successful completion of that
Five previously established research programs continued throughout the review
period. The Center for International Data, headed by Robert Feenstra of
Economics, collects, enhances, creates, and disseminates international economic
data and is a partner in the National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded Penn World
Tables project, the leading source of internationally comparable national accounts
data. The Center for State and Local Taxation, headed by Steven Sheffrin of
Economics (and Dean of the Social Sciences) promotes education and research in
taxation and seeks to facilitate a clearer understanding of the effects of alternative
state and local tax strategies on individual and corporate taxpayers, economic
activity, and government revenues. Throughout the review period, the center
hosted its highly regarded annual Summer Tax Institute for tax professionals from
across the country, and its researchers conducted a number of tax-related studies.
Migration Dialogue, headed by Philip Martin of Agricultural and Resource Economics
(formerly known as the Program on Immigration, Population, and the Economy)
continued its work developing the data and analysis necessary for rational decision-
making on emotionally charged immigration issues. The program hosted several
public events on immigration-related issues during the review period. The Program
on Pacific Rim Business and Development, headed by Robert Feenstra, serves as a
meeting place for social scientists at Davis with interests in development of the
Pacific Rim region. The Rural Economies of the Americas Program, headed by J.
Edward Taylor of Agricultural and Resource Economics, conducts cross-border
collaborative research, training, and outreach on the rural economies of the

Americas. The program enjoyed continued support from the Hewlett Foundation
and other extramural sources during the review period. IGA also continues to serve
as the campus home of the systemwide Institute on Global Conflict and
Cooperation (IGCC). This responsibility involves serving as a liaison and contact
point on the campus for the systemwide IGCC program headquartered at UC San
Diego and providing campus-based seminars, conferences, and other activities in
relevant research areas.
The most recent periodic review of the Agricultural History Center culminated in
the decision to disestablish the center as a formal ORU. At the request of the Vice
Chancellor for Research, the Institute of Governmental Affairs absorbed the
programs and functions of the center. The center had long administered the MRU,
All-UC Group in Economic History, and IGA now does so. The All-UC Group links
together faculty and graduate students interested in economic history from all
campuses of the University of California. The Office of the President of the
University of California provides permanent funding for the Group's core budget.
The Group's wide-ranging activities are made possible by additional support from
internal and extramural sources. The group typically sponsors two conferences a
year and supports graduate student research in a variety of ways. The most recent
conference, held at UC Davis, was titled New Comparative Economic History: A
Conference in Honor of Peter Lindert. The program for this conference can be
viewed on the IGA Web site ( under Research Programs > All-
UC Group in Economic History).
Finally, during the review period, the institute established three new programs:
the Center for the Evolution of the Global Economy, the Conflict Processes Group,
and the Program on Decision-making, Communication, and Uncertainty. The Center
for the Evolution of the Global Economy (CEGE) is headed by Alan M. Taylor of
Economics and focuses on the study of the global economy past and present.
The center was created as part of a retention package for Professor Taylor and
builds upon campus strengths in the applied fields of international economics and
economic history. Participants include Gregory Clark, Robert Feenstra, Peter
Lindert, and Giovanni Peri (Economics). The center seeks to promote
understanding of the process of globalization in the long run, employing cutting
edge comparative and global approaches to the study of economic issues. The
program was just established in 2006 and is already off to an impressive start with
an ambitious proposal for international research and graduate training which made
it to the full proposal stage of the NSF’s new Partnerships for International
Research and Education (PIRE) program and is now being reformulated for
potential resubmission and submission to other external funding sources. The
Conflict Processes Group, headed by Zeev Maoz of Political Science, is devoted to
the study of interpersonal, intergroup, intranational, and international conflict
that entails potential or actual violence. The program was founded in 2005 and
has proven to be a hub of interdisciplinary activity on the campus in this timely
area of research. The program sponsors panel discussions and lectures that are
intended to provide perspectives on current events, as well as events (seminars,
workshops, and conferences) intended for a more narrow scholarly audience. The

Program on Decision-making, Communication, and Uncertainty, headed by
Robert Huckfeldt of Political Science, was established in the spring of 2005. The
program is an interdisciplinary initiative focusing on the use of experimental,
computational, and observational methodologies for the study of decision-making
and communication in contexts marked by uncertainty. The program enjoys broad
participation from a number of social science departments across the campus. In
addition to its interdisciplinary seminar series, program participants have
submitted several collaborative interdisciplinary research and instrumentation
proposals to NSF to support group activities.
Details on the full range of activities of IGA’s programs can be found in the Public
Affairs section that follows and the calendar of events for the review period
provided as Appendix 7. Due to IGA’s role as a hub for social science activity
across the campus, it is well positioned to identify emerging areas of strength
and interdisciplinary interest and to foster the development of new programs in
the coming years.
Faculty Recruitment and Retention
IGA plays a key role in the recruitment and retention of faculty in the social
sciences. IGA staff often meet with faculty job candidates in relevant
departments during their visits to the campus to describe the support available to
social scientists on the UC Davis campus through the institute and, once hired, to
work with them on any transitional issues such as transfer of existing grants and/or
research data. IGA also hosts a new faculty orientation event each fall to
reintroduce its resources and services and help connect new faculty to the broader
social science community on the campus. Despite budgetary limitations, IGA also
tries to assist campus efforts to retain top faculty.
Institute Funding Programs and Extramural Grant Activities
The institute supports two small, yet high-impact, funding programs for social
scientists: the Junior Faculty Research Program and the Dissertation
Improvement Awards Program. These programs are administered by faculty
committees (the membership of these committees during the review is provided
in Appendix 1.)
The goal of the IGA Junior Faculty Research Program is to assist junior faculty in
cultivating a base of external funding that will support their work over the long
term. In addition to seed support, recipients of Junior Faculty Research Program
awards have access to IGA’s grant-related services such as identifying potential
funding sources, proposal preparation and submission assistance, and grant
management services for funded projects. Although IGA’s funding for the program
is limited (the annual budget for the program averages $31,000), the return on
these seed investments has been excellent. From its inception in 1998-99 through
the 2006-2007 academic year, the program made 75 awards (to 44 individuals)
totaling $279,454. Eighty percent of the awardees fulfilled their obligation to apply
for external support. Award recipients secured 47 grants totaling nearly $2.5
million in extramural funding. Each dollar invested in the program has yielded

nearly nine more to support faculty research while helping junior faculty build
skills, knowledge, and experience in obtaining research funding that will benefit
them throughout their careers. A list of Junior Faculty Research Program awards
made over the review period is provided as Appendix 2.
Since 2003-2004, IGA has sponsored a Dissertation Improvement Awards Program.
The program is intended to provide research funding for exemplary graduate
students. The grants are used for research-related expenses such as interview
transcription, data acquisition, fieldwork, and travel to archives and special
collections. The institute works with department graduate program chairs to
administer parallel competitions in several departments with award criteria tailored
to the varying needs and preferences of the disciplines. From 2003-2004 to 2006-
2007, the program received over 115 application requesting nearly $120,000 and has
been able to provide the top 66 applicants with a combined total of $47,638 in
support. These modest awards have allowed many talented students to expand the
depth and breadth of their dissertation research in ways that not only improve the
quality of the dissertation but have positive impacts on their initial job
placements and on their careers for many years to come. A list of students and
projects supported as part of this program is provided as Appendix 3.
IGA also provides a full range of grant-related services to faculty and graduate
students in the social sciences. IGA notifies faculty of funding opportunities in
their areas of interest and assists in the preparation and submission process, as
well as providing post-award grant management services. IGA’s grant-related
services cover the full life cycle of the project from the initial development of the
project, to identification of likely funding sources, through the proposal
submission process, and into the post-award phase.
Over the review period, IGA has taken an increasing role in facilitating large,
multi-investigator, and interdisciplinary research proposals to competitions such
as NSF’s Major Instrumentation program (MRI), Integrative Graduate Education and
Research Traineeship (IGERT), and Partnerships for International Research and
Education (PIRE) programs. These programs fund infrastructure and programmatic
activities and often have specialized application requirements. IGA’s logistic
support in these areas has been critical to making such undertakings more
manageable for the faculty involved and thus encouraging them to make the
commitment to develop proposals of this kind.
Over the review period, IGA submitted 164 proposals to funding agencies on
behalf of campus faculty and graduate students, and the institute helped secure
and/or managed a total of 99 new and continuing grants. These grants, totaling
over $7.4 million, were received from such prestigious sources as the Alfred P.
Sloan Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Ford Foundation, the
John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the National Institute of Justice,
the National Science Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the
Russell Sage Foundation, the Smith Richardson Foundation, the U.S. Institute of
Peace, the W. E. Upjohn Institute, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and
the William T. Grant Foundation. A list of awards secured and/or managed by

IGA over the review period is provided as Appendix 4. Summary statistics on
grant submission and awards over the review period are provided in Table 1.

** This number represents the total value of new awards. The timing of the actual allocation of funds,
especially for multi-year awards, will vary, and therefore, these numbers do not match the “budget”
numbers in the financial data that is presented in Adequacy of Space and Resources.

Research Services
The research services unit of the Institute of Governmental Affairs, the IGA Library
& Data Archive and the Social Science Data Service, works to provide seamless
support for quantitative research by faculty and graduate students. The IGA
Library & Data Archive assists researchers in efficiently identifying, selecting, and
acquiring the data most appropriate for their particular research application. Once
data have been acquired, the Social Science Data Service steps in to facilitate
computing and analysis with its specialized systems and consulting services. The
staff have close ties to faculty and graduate students in the quantitative social
sciences and provide “cradle to grave” services not available elsewhere on campus
and that mirror IGA’s comprehensive approach to grant support outlined earlier.
IGA Library & Data Archive (LDA)
The LDA provides research support to social science faculty and graduate students
through data identification and acquisition, in-depth reference service, and
targeted collection development. The staff are well-versed in social science data
and bibliographic sources, as well as the research interests of the faculty and
students they serve. LDA staff proactively collect electronic and print materials to
meet those needs. Over the course of the review period, the Library & Data Archive
served users from approximately 32 departments across the campus and at
UCDMC. A departmental listing is provided as Appendix 5.
The LDA provides access to a broad array of social science information that is
tailored to the needs and interests of its clientele and is outside the scope of
campus library collections. While the library maintains limited print collections,
its primary emphasis is electronic social science data. The collection includes

 The number of submissions annually varies over the review period in part because many grants
are multi-year, and thus faculty tend to submit new grants only every few years. Because awards
are frequently submitted in one year and awarded in the next, it is not possible to use these
numbers to look at success rates on an annual basis.

approximately 3,600 print titles (serials and monographs) and 185 electronic
The Library & Data Archive administers data-related institutional memberships.
IGA has long served as the campus contact point for the Inter–university
Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICSPR), the premier social science
data archive. The ICPSR is an organization of member institutions working
together to acquire and preserve social science data, provide open and equitable
access to these data, and promote effective data use. Membership provides users
with free access to ICPSR’s vast data collection and reduced fee access to the
ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Science Research (the
latter of which is discussed in the section on graduate student support). LDA staff
work with faculty and graduate students to facilitate their use of these invaluable
resources. Table 2 gives some sense of the value of data provided to the campus
as part of our ICPSR membership during the review period.

* Figures for 2001-2002 are ICPSR provided estimates. In 2003-2004 ICPSR changed its pricing
structure for non-members from individually priced studies to a flat fee of $500 per study.

The total cost of membership over the review period was $76,460, and UC Davis
affiliates made use of over $1 million dollars in ICPSR data (this figure does not
include the value of attendance at the ICPSR Summer Program). Thus IGA’s
provision and promotion of this resource leveraged campus funding at a rate of
over 13-to-1.
Other memberships provided and managed by IGA include the systemwide Field
Institute Academic Consortium, the UC source of the Field (California) Polls, and
the U.S. Census Bureau’s State Census Data Center Affiliate Program, the source of
access to specialized census data products and consultation from state and federal
census personnel. In 2002-2003, in response to user requests, IGA added a
membership to the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research, the world’s
largest archive of survey data. This new membership has been well-received and
widely utilized. Table 3 summarizes use of center data.

The total cost of the Roper Center membership over the review period was
$15,800, and campus users received data and related services valued at nearly
$54,000 from the Roper Center. This new membership provided nearly $3.50
in benefit for every dollar spent.
The LDA also purchases several campus-licensed datasets on an annual basis.
These include China trade data, Hong Kong trade data, and U.S. Economic Data
from Haver Analytics. New during the review period are CPS Utilities from Unicon
(first acquired in 2001-2002), Direction of Trade Statistics from the International
Monetary Fund (first acquired in 2002-2003), and United Nations Industrial
Commodity Statistics (acquired in 2004-2005 and 2005-2006).
As funds permit the LDA acquires datasets on a one-time basis in response to
user needs. As an example, in 2004-2005 the Library & Data Archive coordinated
a campus purchase of China Historical County Population Census Data with GIS
Maps (1953, 1964, 1982, 1990, 2000) at the request of several campus users. The
LDA not only contributed to the purchase price, but coordinated contributions
from other campus units, and now hosts and disseminates the data on its Web site.
From its acquisition in 2004-2005 through 2006-2007, this one resource was
downloaded some 35 times, saving the campus nearly $96,000 over the cost of
individual purchases. Summary usage statistics for electronic resources are shown
in Table 4:

During this review period, the Library & Data Archive conducted a complete
review of holdings and acquisitions and made significant cuts both in response to
the institute’s overall budgetary restrictions and to redirect support to areas most
important to its core users. The LDA also moved to a new online library system
for its catalog. Due to the prohibitive costs to be levied by Shields Library to
participate in their cataloging system when they moved to Aleph, in 2001-2002 the
IGA Library & Data Archive selected an online system from EOS International to
serve as its in-house technical processing and library catalog. Holdings records were
migrated to this system which continues to serve the library well and provides a
Web-based online catalog for users. The LDA also enhanced user access during this
review period by implementing a secure online service for downloading high-
demand datasets from its collections. This system has been redesigned and
augmented several times over the review period and allows users immediate access
to key holdings using their campus Kerberos login thereby saving the need to
request datasets from staff.
Social Science Data Service (SSDS)
The mission of the SSDS is to provide quantitative research computing support
and supplementary computing resources for the affiliated departments of
economics, political science, and sociology. The data service provides the affiliated
departments with a research-oriented computing environment that takes advantage
of economies of scale and shared computing resources. Additionally, SSDS provides
research support to the social science community on the UC Davis campus as
resources allow and administers two campus-wide software licenses. The site
licenses provide researchers across the campus with substantial savings over the
regular academic price for these products. SSDS provides SPSS, a social science
statistical package, to campus users at substantial savings. The annual fee charged
by SSDS for 6 core modules of the SPSS package is $143. By comparison, the one-
time academic price for the current version of these modules is over $3,700 (plus an
additional $800 annual maintenance fee). Thus, SSDS saves campus users of this
software package an estimated $2 million over a five year period (assuming no
increase in price over that period). A list of UC Davis units that have made use of

SSDS’s statistical computing services or benefited from its site licenses for
statistical software is provided as Appendix 6.
The staff at SSDS have considerable expertise in general information technology as
well as a specialization in quantitative software and methods in the social
sciences. The majority of SSDS consulting questions are short term in nature.
However, some questions are of an extended nature, requiring an hour or more to
answer. The consulting service at SSDS is focused on assisting faculty and graduate
students, making them more productive, and providing technical assistance to
overcome obstacles they may encounter in the course of their quantitative analyses.
While SSDS sometimes deals with general computing issues, more often the staff
address specialized quantitative social science computing concerns, including the
use of the SSDS computing system (a mixed environment of personal computers and
a central UNIX research application server), mathematical and statistical
applications support, and other quantitative or computational research computing
issues. SSDS also addresses data-related issues such as importing data from
external sources or the IGA Library & Data Archive collections. In many respects the
Social Science Data Service functions as a shared research laboratory for
quantitative social science research.
During this review period, the consultant at SSDS developed a series of formal
workshops on data management, computing, and statistical software issues
relevant to the use of quantitative research in the social sciences. These workshops
have been well received and the program has been expanded and adapted in
response to faculty feedback on their own interests and the training needs of their
graduate students. These workshops are generally filled to capacity (capacity is
constrained by the availability of appropriately equipped instructional computing
facilities on the campus). SSDS also introduced two new tools for SSDS users
during this review period. The first is an expanded Web site, developed jointly
with the IGA Library & Data Archive that features information on their computing
and data resources. The second is the NESSTAR server which provides a seamless
instructional environment where data can be easily distributed via the Web, and
students can perform sophisticated quantitative analyses without having to use
expensive and complicated statistical applications. SSDS upgraded and expanded
its computer systems in 2002-2003 and 2006-2007, funded by the Division of Social
Public Affairs
IGA strives to enrich the intellectual life of the campus through its public affairs
and conference programs. Every year IGA hosts a number of conferences, lectures,
seminars, and other activities and frequently co-sponsors events with other campus
organizations. In general, IGA’s public affairs goals are to bring together
interdisciplinary audiences to consider topics of common interest and to provide
broader audiences from both on- and off-campus with social science perspectives
on some of the key issues of concern in the world today.

Each year IGA provides logistic support for several conferences, including the
annual EJS Spring Conference and the Summer Tax Institute. EJS conferences
during the period under review focused on Gender over the Life-Cycle;
Determinants of Children’s Success; Education, Diversity and Public Policy in
California; Health and Income; The Evolution of Preferences; and Education,
Human Capital and Social Inequality. IGA also sponsors or co-sponsors lectures
to campus-wide audiences by distinguished social scientists. The occasional series
Profiling the Social Sciences (co-sponsored with the Division of Social Sciences
and others) is one venue for these talks. IGA places a priority on its
interdisciplinary seminar programming and typically sponsors 20 to 30 seminars
each academic year. These seminars include those organized by the IGA research
programs and seminars such as the PolicyWatch series which address key policy
issues and current events. Over the review period IGA has used the PolicyWatch
series to help the campus consider the ramifications of events such as September
11, 2001, Hurricane Katrina, and the changing situation in the Middle East. IGA also
provides logistic support for other events such as the EJS graduate student retreat,
meetings of interdisciplinary working groups, social science briefings for senior
campus administrators, grant funding workshops, and the SSDS quantitative
computing workshops. Summary statistics on events for the review period are
presented in Table 5.

Special Note on Graduate Student Activities
IGA plays a key, though informal, role in graduate education on the UC Davis
campus. Its support of graduate students is highlighted throughout this document
but this section draws this information together to address two broad questions in
the Graduate Council Guidelines for Review of Proposed or Existing ORUs that
are most relevant to graduate education in the social sciences on the UC Davis
   •   What does the ORU bring to the campus that is not accomplished through
       graduate groups and programs?

   •   What makes the ORU distinct from graduate groups and programs? Does the
       ORU have a focus and/or interdisciplinary approach that distinguishes it?
IGA serves as an interdisciplinary hub for graduate education in the social
sciences. IGA works with departments and graduate groups across the social
sciences to support and augment their activities. The institute does not have any
direct teaching or degree granting responsibilities but acts to facilitate activities in
the departments and groups. One way in which IGA augments these activities is
through its interdisciplinary research programs described previously in the section
on IGA Centers and Programs. Students readily participate in the seminars and
other activities of a number of our research programs. The programs most notable
in this regard during the review period are Economy, Justice and Society; the Center
on Quantitative Social Science Research; the campus program of the Institute on
Global Conflict and Cooperation; the Conflict Processes Group; and the Program on
Decision-making, Communication, and Uncertainty. Graduate students are frequent
attendees at the seminars and conferences of these programs and benefit from their
interactions with UC Davis faculty from a variety of other departments and their
contact with the distinguished scholars who speak at these events. In addition to its
seminar and conference programming, the Economy, Justice and Society program
also holds a retreat dedicated to helping prepare graduate students from several
social science departments for the job market.
IGA also provides a number of support services to students that are not available
to them elsewhere on campus. The Dissertation Improvement Awards Program is
described in detail in the section on Institute Funding Programs and Extramural
Grant Activities. The program provides research funding for exemplary graduate
students. The grants are used for research expenses such as interview
transcription, data acquisition, fieldwork, and travel to archives and special
collections. IGA also provides its grant submission and management services to
graduate students. IGA assisted a number of graduate students with grant
submissions over the review period and managed several awards for student
research (see Appendix 4 for funded projects). In addition, graduate students are
frequently employed on faculty research grants administered by IGA. A list of over
100 graduate students employed at IGA during the review period is provided as
Appendix 8. The IGA Library & Data Archive provides data assistance to a large
number of graduate students across the campus each year. Graduate students
are perhaps the single largest category of users of the data collections and the
ability to access key data resources without charge through the IGA Library & Data
Archive is a major benefit to them. As part of the campus membership in the Inter-
university Consortium for Political and Social Research, IGA promotes and helps
subsidize graduate student participation in the specialized training courses of the
ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Science Research.
Financial assistance is allocated by a faculty committee (membership of the
committee over the review period is noted in Appendix 1). In addition, UC Davis
students are charged a lower member rate for enrollment in these courses. The
approximate value of travel subsidies provided and savings on enrollment fees
(assuming each student took only one 4-week course) is almost $45,000 over the

review period. A list of thirty students who attended the ICPSR Summer Program
during the review period is provided as Appendix 9. SSDS also supports graduate
student training and research through its computing services and consulting
assistance and workshops in quantitative computing. While it would be difficult to
comprehensively track the institute’s services to graduate students, Appendix 10
lists PhD’s granted from 2001 – 2002 to 2006 – 2007 that were supported by IGA
and/or SSDS and is suggestive of the numbers of students who benefit from
involvement in IGA. In addition, the All-UC Group in Economic History supports
graduate students throughout the UC system.
Adequacy of Space and Other Resources
Detailed information on the institute’s expenditures and funding for core IGA
functions is provided as Appendix 11.
Over the course of the past six years, the permanent allocation for IGA staff
positions has been impacted by campus-wide budget reductions. In fact, for the
years represented in this review, the most recent budget allocation (FY 2006-07) is
7% less than the first year represented in this review (FY 2001-02). The actual
reductions were much greater, but have been partially off-set by range adjustments
and cost of living increases.
These budget reductions forced changes in IGA personnel, and it was necessary to
eliminate positions and lay-off employees. Our staff FTE was reduced from 9.0
FTE to 6.73 FTE; a 25% reduction. While these changes were implemented
strategically, it left a greater burden on the remaining staff as job functions had to
be reassigned. In addition, IGA absorbed the Agricultural History Center (AHC) in FY
2005-06, which included a part-time staff position who agreed to work full-time at
IGA as the institute’s event coordinator. This position was partially funded on a
temporary basis (through June 2008) by AHC with the remainder being funded by
IGA. Full-time funding for this position should be addressed on a permanent basis as
the position is critical to the activities of IGA, especially given the number of special
events (seminars, workshops, forums, conferences, etc.) that are coordinated by
IGA. The amount requested to fully fund this critical position on an annual basis is
approximately $19,000.
Additionally, funding for the Social Science Data Service (SSDS) unit needs to be
firmed up. The Vice Chancellor of Research has provided funding for SSDS on a
current year basis and committed support in the amount of $46,065 per year
through June 2009. Continuance of this support is critical to the ongoing
effectiveness of SSDS and the dedicated service it provides to social science faculty
and graduate students as well as to the campus overall. For continued stability of
the SSDS unit, it would be beneficial to have a long-term commitment that
coincided with the term of the IGA Director.
Currently the space provided to IGA has been utilized fully and meets IGA’s mission.
Our central campus location enhances our ability to serve faculty, students, and
staff from a wide array of disciplines. The space provided SSDS in the Social Science
and Humanities Building (SSH) is well suited to meet the needs of SSDS users. In

2005-06 IGA acquired two additional offices in the SSH building (5201 and 5202)
when the AHC was absorbed by IGA. These offices are being used for faculty
research activities.
Future Directions
IGA was charged with consulting widely in the preparation of this report. The
                                               IGA staff and director held a series of
  Faculty Consulted in the Preparation of this

 Alan M. Taylor (Economics)                    the ideal interdisciplinary “meeting
 J. Edward Taylor (Ag & Resource Economics)    place” for social scientists, where
 Elizabeth Zechmeister (Political Science)     “the whole is greater than the sum of
                                               its parts.” This has allowed IGA to
keep abreast of changing faculty interests, new hires, emerging research areas in
the social sciences, and to facilitate scholarly exchange and interdisciplinary
Over the review period, IGA has capitalized on its knowledge of faculty interests
to support interdisciplinary efforts in areas such as economic and social

inequality (through the program on Economy, Justice and Society), conflict
studies (through the Conflict Processes Group), decision-making in contexts
marked by uncertainty (through the Program on Decision-making,
Communication, and Uncertainty), and economic growth and globalization
(through the Center for the Evolution of the Global Economy). As a result of such
activities, IGA has also become the ideal venue for fostering large multi-
investigator projects, and infrastructure proposals (such as IGERTs, MRIs, etc.).
Some of the faculty initiatives that began in IGA have influenced academic
planning and recruitments in the social sciences across the campus and have
influenced the direction of development of the Division of Social Sciences.
Looking to the future, several areas of emerging importance in social science
research were also identified in these meetings. These include cultural evolution
and experimental and computational methods in the social sciences. A number
of faculty in departments such as anthropology, economics, sociology, and
environmental science and policy are interested in questions regarding how
cultures and societies evolve over time. UC Davis faculty are among the leading
scholars in this interdisciplinary field which makes this a fertile ground for a new
research initiative at IGA. The campus also boasts a growing contingent of
scholars employing innovative new experimental and computational methods to
explore topics across the social sciences. This too may be an area where new
initiatives can be developed. In the future there is every reason to believe that
the institute will continue to keep abreast of changing faculty interests and where
the campus possesses the necessary human capital will seek to facilitate
communication amongst scholars and to seed their efforts to secure extramural
funding to support new and existing areas of interdisciplinary and multi-
investigator interest.
There was also a sentiment that IGA serves as the social science equivalent of the
shared instrumentation and laboratories of the hard sciences. The institute fills
a critical role in supporting social science research, graduate training, and
outreach on the UC Davis campus by providing support services in grant advising,
preparation, and management; library and data services; social science
computing, programming, and statistical consulting; and event coordination. A
number of faculty felt that the services offered by IGA were indispensable to
the conduct of top-quality social science research and that their future
expectation for IGA was “more of the same.” The institute is the natural vehicle
for these activities in part because it handles a sufficient volume of each to be
efficient and possess comparative expertise and yet the institute is also close
enough to the faculty and departments to be in tune with their needs,
preferences, and plans for future development. Providing these resources through
an ORU is more efficient than providing them at the departmental level where
they might not be used to capacity. It has also been a more effective approach
than providing centralized campus-level resources that are not tailored to the
needs of social scientists. Further, the very provision of these services to a broad
range of social scientists provides the ORU with the kind of knowledge of campus’

research directions and capacity that is needed to foster the collaborative
research and communication that is at the core of the mission of any ORU.
Another recurring theme was the role IGA has played in recruitment and
retention of faculty. IGA’s support services have allowed social science
departments to grow and change dramatically over the review period. The growth
of public and labor economics, experimental methods in political science, and
quantitative sociology are all examples of areas where IGA has supported
departmental, divisional, and campus academic planning goals.
This report summarizes the history of the Institute of Governmental Affairs, its
activities over the period under review, and its future plans. Over the past six
years, IGA has served as a focal point for social science research on the UC
Davis campus and has continued to innovate and to work proactively to meet
the needs of social scientists. This is IGA’s main contribution to the campus.
Three new and well-received research programs were established. IGA’s grant
support services were heavily (and successfully) utilized, and a new competitive
program to support graduate student research was established. The IGA research
services continued to support quantitative social science research with data and
computing services. In addition, IGA’s public affairs calendar was full, and the
content of its lectures, seminars, conferences, and other activities remained
vibrant, drawing a wide audience from on- and off-campus.
This report attempts to quantify IGA’s value to the campus and provides several
examples of its financial worth. These include:
   •   $2.5 million in competitive grants to recipients of IGA Junior Faculty
       Research awards
   •   99 new and continuing competitive awards to faculty and graduate
       students submitted and/or managed by IGA during the review period, in
       the amount of over $7.4 million
   •   Three of the many data sources provided by the IGA Library & Data Archive
       generated savings of over $1.1 million to campus users
   •   SPSS site license, managed by SSDS, provides an estimated savings to
       campus users of over $2 million over a five-year period
However, it would be overly simplistic to measure IGA’s value-added purely in
these terms. For example, three of IGA’s data sources generated savings of over
$1.1 million to the campus, but this figure does not even attempt to capture the
value of the research conducted with those datasets. While IGA brought $7.4
million to the campus in extramural research funds, the value of the new
knowledge gained from those studies is incalculable. While the report provides
counts of the number of events sponsored, the value of the intellectual exchanges
that takes place both at these eventss and through the connections forged in these
settings would be impossible to measure. Certainly, IGA activities contribute to

the strong interdepartmental collegiality that many visiting scholars note as a
unique feature of the campus.
The past six years provides ample evidence of IGA’s intellectual and economic
value-added to the campus and of its potential to support the highest quality
social science research, graduate training, and outreach in the years to come.
