Diversity Science Initiative

— filed under: ,

The Department of Psychology launches new Diversity Science Initative to advance theoretical and research perspectives on underrepresented minority groups in the behavioral sciences.

The Diversity Science Initiative at UCLA seeks to advance theoretical and research perspectives on underrepresented minority groups in the behavioral sciences. Scholars study topics spanning disparities in health and mental health, bio-behavioral mechanisms explaining disparities, intergroup relations and conflict, social identity and social cognition, and diversity in development across the lifespan and across social contexts. Diversity Science extends behavioral science to understudied populations including racial/ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, individuals with minority sexual orientations, and diverse socio-economic classes. This research can both test the boundaries of current psychological theory and make new discoveries in identifying unique psychological processes relevant to the experiences of minorities.
