Research drives every pursuit within the College of Human Ecology. Innovation in research, design, and practice is one of the key learning outcomes for our students. Each year approximately 500 students work with faculty members on research projects. These include basic laboratory research; clinical, social, and behavioral research with human participants; field-based studies; evaluation of programs, designs, and materials; and analysis of socioeconomic trends using large data sets. These experiences build on and extend the research-based knowledge and critical thinking skills students gain in classes and provide valuable skills and perspectives that students bring to their careers and passions after Cornell, even if they do not pursue research careers.

|Research Assistants Needed, Issue: 463|
We are looking for two motivated undergraduate research assistants to assist with research on causal reasoning in exchange for research credit. The hours are flexible, but students will be required to participate in weekly lab meetings (time to be decided) and one weekly meeting with the graduate student leading the projects. Both students must be willing to enroll for at least 2 credit hours of research credit and commit to two semesters on either project. Research tasks include assisting with the design of research materials, collecting data, entering data, and assisting with literature reviews. Both research projects concern how individuals evaluate evidence when deciding what caused an event to occur. One project works with college students, and the other project works with professional program evaluators. For more information contact Wanda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
