A collaborative faculty-student research project led by Dr.
Daryl Van Tongeren of the Hope College psychology faculty has won the college’s
fifth annual “Social Sciences Young Investigators Award.”
The students participating in the project
were Abigail Bohler, Paige Garwood, Sabrina Hakim, and Joshua Stafford.
The “Social Sciences Young Investigators Award” is designed
to recognize and encourage junior faculty to partner with students in research
collaborations that further the scholarship goals of the faculty member while
developing the skills of critical inquiry and analysis in his or her students.
It includes funding for the faculty and student team to present the work
at a professional conference.
The team received the recognition for “Examining the Interactive
Effects of Group Status and Perceived Morality on Personality Judgments.”
Van Tongeren, an assistant professor of psychology who has taught at Hope
since 2012, received the award as a junior member of the faculty who has
mentored students in research.
