About Us

We conduct research on a wide variety of topics, including group conflict and cooperation, social dilemmas and public goods problems, collective action, cognitive bias, and organizational behavior. We have an excellent facility with a waiting room, a large, flexible, live group interaction room, and a computer-mediated interaction room with six networked computers in individual cubicles.

If you are an IU undergraduate and are interested in participating in a sociology study, you can learn more, browse currently open studies, or sign up for a time slot at our "Participate" page.

Are you an IU undergraduate interested in working as a research assistant? This is a great way to learn more about research and apply what you are learning in your classes. You can find out more at our "Become a Research Assistant" page.
