What We Do

The Motivate Lab is driven to improve people’s lives through rigorous motivation research and to understand the mindsets that promote learning, growth, and well-being.

What We Do

Led by Professor Chris Hulleman, the Lab combines approaches from psychological science and design-thinking to conduct cutting-edge research and develop applied solutions, in settings ranging from K- 12 and higher education to summer camps, sports, and work.

Our Work

Recent projects include increasing motivation for community college math students, facilitating motivation and skills transfer from camp to school, and exploring motivation development across different pathways to employment.
