The Applied Social Research Lab was created out of a desire to develop an academic survey research lab that would serve both the University community and the larger Tri-Cities region. Our goal is to integrate teaching, research, and service to provide a comprehensive approach to solving complex research problems. Our team members come from various disciplines and we bring a broad range of expertise to our projects.
The Applied Social Research Laboratory is integrated with the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at East Tennessee State University. This partnership benefits both graduate and undergraduate students because they get hands-on experience planning and conducting research, assisting with data analysis, and working with ASRL faculty on report writing and presentations. The real-world research and project management experience that students receive here makes our students competitive whether they are pursuing employment opportunities or additional education.
