Intergroup Relations

Intergroup Relations Research

IGR conducts research to assess outcomes of its programming and the processes through which those outcomes take place. Through IGR, students are provided with the opportunity to explore and develop their own research questions, data collection methods, and design. Using qualitative methods, quantitative survey research, content analysis of student papers, cross-sectional and longitudinal studies, and intensive interviews, faculty, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate researchers have published peer-reviewed journal articles, monographs, and doctoral dissertations inspired by IGR’s work.
