Center for Gambling Studies

The Center for Gambling Studies (CGS) is an international, multidisciplinary center for the study of gambling-related issues. The center's mission is to promote empirical research, to evaluate gambling-related policies and serve as a legislative resource, and to provide nationally accredited training for compulsive gambling counselors. The CGS is housed in the School of Social Work at Rutgers University-New Brunswick.

The mission of the Center for Gambling Studies is twofold: to drive global decision-making on gambling-related issues by conducting strategic, nonpartisan research and policymaking that is international and multidisciplinary; and to benefit individuals and families adversely affected by gambling problems by initiating innovative training and intervention programs.

Our focus is concentrated in three major projects and programs:

  • policymaking and harm reduction
  • counselor and student training and development
  • global and community partnerships
