The mission of the CESPP is to promote experimental research in Political Science and other disciplines, and in particular to advance scholarly understanding of decision-making and voting behavior. 

To accomplish this goal the CESPP offers “how to” workshops during the semester, and a state-of the art laboratory facility for conducting research. 

The Center's experimental lab is located on the second floor of the Woodlawn Carriage House on Cook/Douglass Campus in New Brunswick, NJ. The laboratory is equipped with 20 workstations and a supervisor desk. The lab can support a wide range of experiments, including survey, psychology, process-tracing, and behavioral economic experiments. 

We are currently building a subject pool consisting of non-student adults who live in the New Brunswick and Highland Park area. To find out more, please click here.
