About Us


Ateneo CORD was established in 1974 as the Human Resources Center by the Department of Psychology. It was the “manifestation of a felt responsibility to translate theoretical knowledge of human behavior into applicable tools for effective human resource development in organizations and communities”. In 2002, the new name was introduced to better reflect the scientist-practitioner character of the Center. As an academic unit, it was deemed important to highlight the research facet of the work performed.

As the extension arm of the Psychology Department in Industrial-Organizational (IO) Psychology, it is the venue where faculty and graduate students in this discipline apply and share their knowledge in the fields of training, research and organization development.
