DEPUTY DIRECTOR JOINS CORE TEAM OF NEW JOHN TEMPLETON FOUNDATION FUNDED PROJECT
Deputy Director of the Jubilee Centre, Professor Kristján Kristjánsson, has joined the core team of a new JTF-funded project, "The Pathways to Character", run out of Arizona State University and Wake Forest University.

The other core team members are:
William Fleeson, Wake Forest University
Patricia Frazier, University of Minnesota
Richard Lerner, Tufts University
Crystal Park, University of Connecticut
Jacqui Smith, University of Michigan
Howard Tennen, University of Connecticut
Valerie Tiberius, University of Minnesota
