The division is interested in processes related to decision making, deliberation, coordination, face and identity, collaboration, conflict, and leadership, as well as the functions, effects, technologies and structures of groups, and is open to both laboratory and field research methodologies. The division is also interested in the pedagogy, training, and practical applications of group communication theories.
