Pusat Penelitian Kemasyarakatan dan Budaya (PPKB) didirikan pada tahun 1986. Pada awalnya lembaga ini merupakan bagian dari Lembaga Penelitian Universitas Indonesia (LPUI) yang pembentukannya terkait dengan kewajiban universitas memenuhi Peraturan Pemerintah Republik Indonesia No. 5 tahun 1980, tentang Tri Dharma Perguruan Tinggi, yaitu melaksanakan pendidikan, penelitian dan pengabdian pada masyarakat. Setelah terbit SK Rektor pada November 2005 mengenai likuidasi LPUI, pengelolaan pusat-pusat penelitian yang semula berada di bawahnya diserahkan pada fakultas terkait. dengan demikian, sejak 2006 PPKB resmi dikelola oleh Fakultas Ilmu Pengetahuan Budaya Universitas Indonesia ( FIB UI) dengan Dr. Anggadewi Moesono sebagai kepala hingga tahun 2008 dilanjutkan oleh Dr. Magdalia Alfian dari tahun 2008 - 2011, dilanjutkan oleh Prof. Dr. Titik Pudjiastuti dari tahun 2012 - 2014, dilanjutkan oleh Dr. Kushartanti dari 2014 - sekarang.
