The Stanford Prison Experiment

This important experiment took place at Stanford University in 1971 and remains actively studied and discussed today. Films have been made about it—one was made as recently as 2015. For this discussion, research the Stanford Prison Experiment and watch the video entitled “Quiet Rage: The Stanford Prison Experiment,” which can be found in the South University Online Library. Then, address the following questions:Why was the experiment stopped more than a week sooner than intended? Should it have been stopped sooner, or should it have perhaps been allowed to run its intended length of two weeks?What impact did this experiment have on scientific research?What lessons can managers in today’s jails and prisons learn from this experiment? If you were to be put in charge of a correctional facility, how would the Stanford Prison experiment influence your management style or actions?
