Welcome to the Gender and Interpersonal Dynamics Lab at the University of South Florida.  Led by Drs. Jennifer Bosson and Joseph Vandello, our lab uses social psychological methods to research a wide range of topics related to gender.

We consider the diversity of our colleagues — students, faculty, and staff — to be a strength and critical to our educational and research missions.  Dimensions of diversity can include sex, race, age, national origin, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, faith and non-faith perspectives, socio-economic class, disability status, political ideology, education, military experience, cognitive style, and communication style.  Our goal is to help everyone be successful in an environment where we all feel safe and welcome.
