The University of Oklahoma was recently awarded a $3.9 million grant from the Templeton Religion Trust to study the self and virtue in public life. Institute Director, Dr. Nancy Snow, will serve as the Project Investigator for the 36-month grant. She will collaborate with Professor of Psychology Dr. Darcia Narvaez (University of Notre Dame) and other researchers throughout the project.
"The Self, Virtue, and Public Life" project is scheduled to begin September 1, 2018 and will support a variety of research activities and public events, including:
- Approximately 10 new research projects;
- Research conferences;
- Several monographs and edited volumes;
- Public lectures;
- The "Civic Virtues Project," which will integrate civic virtues into classes at three Norman schools and produce a publicly available "Teachers Guide to Civic Virtue";
- Workshops in collaboration with the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits.
The research projects will be selected via an internationally distributed Request for Proposals. If you are interested in being notified when the RFP is released, please join the Institute's mailing list.
