Welcome to the Multicultural Research Center located in the Department of Psychology at California State University, Los Angeles. Founded in 1996 by Drs. Jean Phinney and Eric Kohatsu, our lab is currently under the direction of Dr. Jessica Dennis. The Multicultural Research Center has addressed a variety of issues related to ethnic factors in adolescence and young adulthood, cultural values, and adjustment in immigrant families. Students in Dr. Dennis' lab have presented or co-authored work presented at conferences of the American Psychological Association, Western Psychological Association, and Society for Research in Adolescence.
