Dr. Kathryn Caldwell, assistant professor of psychology, teaches about the relevance of psychology to the lives of her students, encouraging them to become critical, “systems” thinkers and self-aware, caring citizens. Dr. Caldwell integrates issues of sustainability, challenging students to consider what motivates conservation behavior, how the natural world impacts wellbeing, and the impact of vocational and lifestyle choices on the community and environment. Her current research interests include the teaching systems thinking, the value of intergenerational learning, especially for solving problems of sustainable living, and the relationship between mindfulness and sustainable values and behaviors.
