The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction was founded in 1947 by pioneering researcher Alfred C. Kinsey. Located on the campus of Indiana University, the Kinsey Institute's mission is to promote interdisciplinary research and scholarship in the fields of human sexuality, gender, and reproduction. Research scientists conduct studies into sexual health and behavior, and the extensive research collections provide resources for scholars across disciplines in humanities, art, and science.
