Institute for Behavioral Research

The Institute for Behavioral Research plays an important role on the campus of the University of Georgia. We work to provide services, information, and support that can enhance the quality, comprehensiveness, and relevance of social and behavioral research at the University. From humble beginnings as an interdisciplinary discussion group, we have blossomed into a multifaceted research institute. However, we remain committed to the same core principles of service, scholarship, and accessibility that have characterized the IBR from its inception.


Anthropology at the University of Georgia reflects the 21st century landscape of this most human of disciplines. Ecology and environment are emphasized in our study of human societies both past and present. These provide the unique basis for the four major anthropological fields of study at UGA: Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, and Applied Anthropology. Our mission is to pursue and disseminate anthropological knowledge of human cultural behavior and human-environment interaction.
