“In the practice of tolerance, one’s enemy is the best teacher.” 

-The Dalai Lama

Our name stands for the Prejudice and Development Laboratory.  We are dedicated to understanding the developmental consequences of prejudice and prejudice awareness.  We focus on adolescence (ages 10-17) and emerging adulthood (ages 18-25).  These are important times in deciding where one fits into society, and perceptions that this society is discriminatory against one’s own or other social groups is likely to shape a number of outcomes in important ways.
