This research study was based on Social Identity Theory (Ashforth and Mael, 1989), which states that people tend to classify themselves and each other into various social categories, which aims to find how individuals identify themselves within organizations. This qualitative research study examines how various sources of SS (social support) may be associated with sources of identification other than the employing organization. Using interviews with RAs at a Midwestern University, this study examines the frequency and type of SS received from various sources and its association with their source of identification.
