The Research Center for Group Dynamics (RCGD) has advanced the understanding of human behavior in social contexts since 1948.  RCGD conducts experimental studies in laboratories and in natural settings, including schools, businesses, and community groups.  These studies shed light on issues related to social decision-making, prejudice, social relations, attitudes, and emotion.
The findings have immediate practical applications to crime, delinquency, racism, aggression, and other social concerns.
