The Cura Psychologia Project aims to create a vibrant and productive interdisciplinary and cross-departmental community of 18 faculty ambassadors from six Jesuit Catholic Universities: Boston College, the College of the Holy Cross, Fordham University, Georgetown University, Loyola Marymount University, and Seattle University. The development of this learning community, along with the research, scholarship, and public-facing offerings its members produce, seeks to act as a catalyst for change in the psychology departments at the six institutions represented by this project. This three year project (2022-2025) aims to be the first step toward the goal of broadening the discipline of psychology as practiced in psychology departments at Jesuit universities such that scholars and students are better able to approach questions of character virtue formation, ethical reasoning, and moral discernment.
