SHSS Hosts 26th Residential Institute



Sheldon Solomon, Ph.D.



The Department of Conflict Analysis and Resolution (DCAR) and the Department of Multidisciplinary Studies (DMS) in the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS) recently hosted the 26th Residential Institute (RI) on NSU’s main campus. During RI, students enrolled in distance learning come to campus to attend classes; meet with faculty, staff, and their colleagues; attend advising sessions; and participate in workshops, presentations and social activities.

The keynote speaker was Sheldon Solomon, Ph.D., professor of Psychology at Skidmore College.  He also held the Courtney and Steven Ross Endowed Chair in Interdisciplinary Studies. Solomon is one of three social psychologists who developed Terror Management Theory, and is Fellow in the American Psychological Society and the Society for Experimental Social Psychology, a 2007 recipient of an American Psychological Association Presidential Citation, a 2009 recipient of a Lifetime Career Award by The International Society for Self and Identity, and a 2011 Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs Annual Faculty Award. Solomon was one of a group of scholars invited by the Chronicle of Higher Education to reflect on 9/11 themes.

Vice-President Brad Williams, Ph.D., NSU Dean of Student Affairs, and his wife hosted a reception at their home for students in the College Student Affairs program.
