Goff Lab for
Experimental Economics

We do science with GLEE!

GLEE is the experimental economics lab at Bates College operated by Professor Sandra H. Goff with the help of undergraduate student researchers. The lab is dedicated primarily to the study of prosocial economic behavior: charitable donations, volunteerism, support for public goods, ethical consumption, and reduction of negative externalities. Experiments conducted by the lab are performed online, on the Bates College campus, or as field experiments in partnership with non-profit organizations. 

If you would like more information about the lab or are a representative of a non-profit interested in collaboration, please contact us at

If you are interested in being a participant in one of our studies, please fill out the form below.

If you are a student interested in joining the lab, please contact Professor Goff at
