Join us for a talk by Associate Professor of Psychology Jennifer Lilgendahl, one of the principal investigators on the Identity Pathways Project.

 

The Identity Pathways Project is a longitudinal research study being conducted at Haverford College and Western Washington University. The aim of the project is to examine personality and identity development over the college years and beyond. The investigators are experts in personality, identity, relationships, and adolescent and emerging adult development with long histories of collaboration. Research particularly focuses on the intersection of various kinds of experiences, such as academic growth and interpersonal relationships, and how those intersections help explain various pathways of development through college, including specific questions such as: What factors facilitate persistence in science and math-related career paths, especially for women and members of underrepresented groups? How do individuals change and their romantic relationships progress across the college years? How do both academic and relationship experiences contribute to identity development and well-being during college?
