Princeton University - 'Social Psychology' course helps students tackle questions from nonprofits: "n a collaboration facilitated by the University's Community-Based Learning Initiative, the undergraduates combined concepts from the course about the way people think about, feel and behave in social situations with their own research to offer the nonprofit groups a wide range of ideas and insights.
"In class, we cover topics such as persuasion, social influence and social norms," said Nicole Shelton, a professor of psychology who leads the class. "These are principles in social psychology that people can use to intervene in social situations and social problems. The students have the principles and the knowledge to address the community partners' questions." "
