The Institute for Social Research (ISR), an interdisciplinary center for social science research, was created in 1949 when the Research Center for Group Dynamics (founded at Massachusetts Institute of Technology) joined the Survey Research Center. ISR houses the Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) and the Center for Political Studies (CPS).

From 1964 to 1986 it housed the Center for Research on Utilization of Scientific Knowledge (CRUSK). Directors include Rensis Likert, Angus Campbell, F. Thomas Juster, Philip Converse, Harold Jacobson and David Featherman.

The Survey Research Center, forerunner of the Institute for Social Research (ISR), was established at the University of Michigan in 1946, under the direction of Rensis Likert as a center for interdisciplinary research in the social sciences. Fifty years after its founding, ISR had become the nation's longest-standing laboratory for interdisciplinary research in the social sciences. Findings from ISR studies have contributed to policy and practice on issues ranging from racial prejudice and drug abuse, to health, retirement, and welfare.
