Institute for International and 
Cross-Cultural Psychology


The Institute for International and Cross-Cultural Psychology at St. Francis College was founded to help foster the internationalization of the science of psychology, which translates into the following objectives at the local and international levels:

  1. 1. to promote cross-cultural awareness on campus by developing classes, workshops, symposia, and conferences;

  2. 2. to involve students in cross-cultural research;

  3. 3. to foster a sense of appreciation of the cultural richness in the St. Francis College community;

  4. 4. to sponsor research and publications in international and cross-cultural psychology; and

  5. 5. to create a network of ties with other interested psychological institutions in the US and abroad.

We hope you will find this website a useful source of information. Please bear in mind it is under construction, and that more information and resources will be made available over time.
