The primary purpose of the African American Psychology Research Lab is to examine
constructs relevant to the well-being and mental of African Americans. Examples of
primary constructs explored include but are not limited to racial-ethnic socialization,
racial identity, and discrimination. It is also possible that some projects will examine
psychological issues relevant to a broader range of people of color.
Students who join the team can expect to be involved in various aspects of quantitative
diversity-focused research. In the fall of 2010, the team began an investigation of
African American college students’ attitudes toward domestic violence, specifically
examining a variety of constructs relevant to racial and gender attitudes.
