About the SCID Lab

SCID Lab Spring 2017!

Welcome to the Social Cognition and Intergroup Dynamics (SCID) Laboratory, directed by Dr. Corinne A. Moss-Racusin and located at Skidmore College! We conduct Social Psychological research investigating the ways in which stereotypes perpetuate inequities within institutions. We collaborate with a large group of interdisciplinary researchers, and are often looking for additional Skidmore students to participate in our research.
