Welcome to The Cult Education Institute

The Cult Education Institute (CEI), which was formerly known as the Rick A. Ross Institute of New Jersey, is an Internet archive of information about cults, destructive cults, controversial groups and movements. CEI is an educational nonprofit tax-exempted charity and an institutional member of both the New Jersey Library Association and the American Library Association. The CEI online library, which was first launched in 1996, is constantly under construction and expanding to include new research and information. The archives contain thousands of individual documents. Within the CEI files you will find news reports, research papers, court documents, book excerpts and personal testimonies, all carefully organized within hundreds of specifically titled subsections. There are also links to additional relevant research resources.

Due to the size of the CEI library a search feature is available for your convenience. Also see the site map to learn where information and material is located.
