The Henley lab supports undergraduate and faculty research through a variety of programs. Research assistants staff the lab five days a week and can help faculty with the collection and analysis of date. They are also available to support students by providing tutoring in SPSS, GIS and quantitative methods for courses that include this content.
Students who are interested in getting involved in a research project with faculty or who would like to do their own independent research are encouraged to visit the lab to find out about current opportunities.
The HSSRL also encourages and facilitates interdisciplinary research with the creation of faculty work groups.
We also serve as a resource for the community and can provide consulting services.

The HSSRL recently partnered with the Orange County Register to study the impact of newspaper advertising and voter decision-making. We worked with the OCR to conduct an experiment and focus groups. This provided an opportunity for students to get hands-on experience with conducting social science research. In addition, the data from that experiment are available to Henley lab users.
