The social, behavioral, and economic (SBE) sciences have a tremendous impact on quality of life.  With increasingly rigorous methods and an increasingly diverse workforce, the SBE sciences are making transformative advances in many areas. At NSF, we are looking for ways to build on that progress.

With this goal in mind, the SBE Directorate is proud to announce a repositioning of some of its basic research programs, as described in this  Dear Colleague Letter.
