More than 100 students participate in Behavioral Lab’s Drop-In Days


More than 100 students participated in the Whitman Behavioral Laboratory’s first “Drop-In Days” of the Fall 2013 semester. During the two-day event, held September 5-6, students “dropped in” to the research lab, located in room 010 on the concourse level of the Whitman building, to participate in 30-minute research studies. The research, conducted by Drs. Kate Min (post-doctoral research fellow), Julie Niederhoff (assistant professor of supply chain management), Breagin Riley (assistant professor of marketing) and several research assistants, focused on consumer, employee and managerial decision making. Students earned $5 each for their participation.

Drs. Min, Niederhoff and Riley encourage all students to check the Whitman Behavioral Lab webpage for future Drop-In Days or join the participant pool to learn of future participation opportunities.

The Behavioral Laboratory at the Whitman School of Management is designed for the study of human subjects in contexts related to business management. The lab is available for use by all Whitman faculty and PhD students, and is open to participation from all students across Syracuse University, regardless of year or major. The Behavioral Laboratory is part of an ongoing effort to produce relevant, cutting-edge research applicable to multiple disciples across the Whitman School.
