With support from Nicholas Trainer and his family, the Faculty Research Fund enables Widener faculty to conduct research on topics and themes that intersect with the mission and purposes of the Oskin Leadership Institute.
Dr. Kathryn Healey's research focuses on the nature of moral injury and its relationship to ethical leadership. She is also an active licensed psychologist in Pennsylvania and provides assessment and treatment in an integrative psychotherapy model that incorporates biofeedback and especially neurofeedback. Dr. Healey served as our 2015-2016 Trainer Faculty Fellow.
Dr. James Vike, associate professor of political science, served as the institute’s inaugural Trainer Faculty Fellow during the spring semester of 2014. Vike’s research focuses on the factors that enable citizens to reject hyper-partisanship yet remain civically engaged.
