The Socially Responsible Operations (SRO) Center is a new center located in the Department of Industrial Engineering, II -219. The research groups associated with the center are: Improving Design Decisions in Engineering & Applied Systems (IDDEAS), Integrative Solutions for High Dimensions (iSoHD), Governmental Operational & Logistics Decisions, and International Service Systems Engineering Research (ISSER).
SRO’s mission is to discover and promote innovative decision making for the wellbeing of society.
The center strategy is to capitalize on the synergy created by the interaction and collaboration among research groups to create a culture of innovation and problem solving of societal issues. The board of directors strives to create a sustainable operation that will enable the incubation of ideas that will benefit the center’s mission. One of the keys for its success is founded in the allocation of common space, resources and equipment that will impact the development of student’s research skills at a reduced cost.
