Current Research Projects

  • Students’ community connectedness.  In addition to evaluating changes in students’ sense of connectedness to various communities as a function of course participation, this investigation examines longitudinal relationships between connectedness, community engagement, pro-social attitudes, and student growth.
  • Antecedents, consequences, and measurement of community and relational connectedness.  Projects include (a) validating the Inclusion of Community in Self (ICS) Scale, a pictorial measure of community connectedness, (b) assessing changes in inmates’ perceptions of being connected to the community at large and the criminal community over the course of incarceration, and (c) examining the close relationships of inmates upon incarceration and changes over time.
  • Feeling “too close” to intimate others.  Projects include (a) employing daily-diary methodology to examine the causes, correlates, and consequences of “too much closeness” in close relationships, (b) evaluating the prototypical descriptors and causes of wanting less closeness, and (c) priming the desire for less closeness.
