Daryl Van Tongeren, Associate Professor of Psychology, recently received a $234,699 grant from the John Templeton Foundation for the project titled Using Intellectual Humility to Navigate Existential Challenges. The project will run from 1 July 2019 through 30 June 2021.
The purpose of this project is to explore how intellectual humility in the face of existential issues enables individuals to adapt to existential concerns and integrate these experiences into their schemas of self and world in ways that are open, authentic, and growth-focused. The project also involves collaborations with researchers at the University of North Texas, Georgia State University, and the University of Kentucky.
Congratulations, Daryl, on your achievement!
