Project Description

Keilah Worth, Assistant Professor, Psychology was awarded a $7,498 Faculty Research & Scholarly Activities grant to study the effect of service learning and volunteerism on gratitude. She will collaborate with Dr. Mark Snyder, Professor of Psychology at the University of Minnesota, to explore the effect that service, in the forms of service learning and volunteer work, may have on an individual's level of gratitude. It is predicted that participation in these forms of service will have a positive effect on a person's global level of gratitude. High levels of gratitude have been linked to positive outcomes like health and well-being.
