Cross-Directorate Activities

This area encompasses a collection of Foundation-wide activities that provide support for human resource development and infrastructure improvement. The Office of Cross-Directorate Activities (CDA) houses and provides information about various cross-directorate programs in which the Division of Social and Economic Sciences and the Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences participate. CDA administers some programs directly and coordinates other programs aimed at Foundation-wide goals of increasing the participation of women, minorities, and the disabled in science and engineering, encouraging new investigators to initiate research, and encouraging the participation of undergraduates in research. Questions about any cross-directorate activity may be directed to either of the Program Directors for Cross-Directorate Activities, to the coordinator of the specific program listed below, or to the appropriate disciplinary program.
