Examining money and diversity in paid studies on campus

Fliers recruiting participants for research studies conducted by the Graduate School of Business’ (GSB) Behavioral Lab, the Psychology Department, the Laboratory for Social Research and more can be found all around campus. Students participate in this research for a variety of reasons, but monetary reasons dominate the academic ones, raising concerns amongst researchers about maintaining representative and diverse samples.

Q&A with Marta Hanson ’11, new Associate Director for the WCC

As the Associate Director I have several different responsibilities. First of all, I work with the student staff at the WCC. We have about 10 undergrads and 3 graduate students on staff as well as one professional school liaison at the medical school and several interns. All the programming at the WCC is driven by our student staff to provide opportunities for scholarship, leadership, and activism, and my role is to be an advisor to the students.
