The Character Project

From 2010-2013, the goal of the Character Project was to foster new advances in the study of character. We accomplished this goal with a number of activities, including three funding competitions, a three year research project, two research conferences, an innovative summer seminar, and an essay and book prize competition.

From 2013 to 2015, the Developing Character Project built on this previous work with the following activities: Continued research at Wake Forest and the Catholic University of America, a research conference, an edited collection of work we have funded, a trade book, a series of videos, among many other activities.
