Thank you to the RCGD Situational Review committee, which was chaired by David Dunning and included Sonya Dal Cin, Shinobu Kitayama, Briana Mezuk, and Jacqui Smith. Thanks to the committee for its hard work producing a very informative report, and thanks to all the faculty and staff who provided input to the committee and to me during the process.

RCGD plays a very important role in ISR, the University of Michigan, and the larger social science community. It has outstanding faculty and staff and an impressive set of research projects. Under Richard’s directorship it has launched a number of exciting new projects, including the innovative Home Lab, part of the BioSocial Methods Collaborative which Richard directs.
