The Institute for International and Cross-Cultural Psychology (IICCP) at St. Francis College, New York City was founded in 1998. During its 14 years of existence it has become a well known center for the advancement of cross-cultural psychology and international psychology. Supported by an International Advisory Board of psychologists from six countries, members of the institute have engaged in a series of research projects, edited books on a broad variety of topics in international psychology, sponsored conferences, symposia and colloquia, given lectures at many conferences and institutions around the world, and introduced innovative curriculum development.

The Institute's objectives are: (1) to sponsor research and publications in international and cross-cultural psychology; (2) to create a network of ties with other interested psychological institutions in the US and abroad; (3) to promote cross-cultural awareness at Saint Francis College by developing classes, workshops, symposia, and conferences; (4) to involve students in cross-cultural research; and (5) to foster a sense of appreciation of the cultural richness in the St. Francis College community. Members of the institute are active locally, nationally, and internationally.

The Director of the Institute, Uwe P. Gielen, received his Ph.D. in social psychology from Harvard University. His work has centered on cross-cultural psychology and international psychology, moral development, and Tibetan studies. He is a former president of both the International Council of Psychologists (ICP) and the Society for Cross-Cultural Research (SCCR) as well as the 2008 President of American Psychological Associations’ International Psychology Division.

Famous quotes containing the words psychology and/or institute:

    A writer must always try to have a philosophy and he should also have a psychology and a philology and many other things. Without a philosophy and a psychology and all these various other things he is not really worthy of being called a writer. I agree with Kant and Schopenhauer and Plato and Spinoza and that is quite enough to be called a philosophy. But then of course a philosophy is not the same thing as a style.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Whenever any form of government shall become destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, & to institute new government, laying it’s foundation on such principles & organising it’s powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety & happiness.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
