students in the LAIR space

The Laboratory for Advancement of Interdisciplinary Research (LAIR) provides a physical space for VSB faculty and students to conduct research studies using surveys, interviews, focus groups and other primary sources. The LAIR will also serve as a resource for course projects that require primary data collection and support other activities that call for cutting-edge research practices. 

Capabilities of the Lab

  • Audio and visual recording equipment for data collection.
  • A main area where participants will participate in research studies with an adjacent room for researcher controls such as a central computer and intercom system.
  • Mobile tables and chairs, allowing for researchers to have participants sit in any desired arrangement.
