Under the leadership of Director Warren Brown, TRI has established and maintains an infrastructure that encourages large-scale collaborative research and facilitates obtaining funding for a variety of projects.
Furthering Excellence in Interdisciplinary Research
The mission of the Travis Research Institute is to solidly support, encourage, and fund excellent and often groundbreaking research in the School of Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy, to enhance the understanding of human nature toward the relief of disorder and distress. TRI is committed to fostering interdisciplinary research into the relationships between social systems, environmental situations, personality, mental and affective states, cognitive processes, neurobiological functions, and spiritual and religious states and practices.
TRI Research Labs
At the intersection of science, psychology, and theology is the work of research: testing and exploring new hypotheses to expand human knowledge. Most doctoral faculty in the School of Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy have “laboratories,” consisting of a team of faculty, collaborators, research assistants, and students conducting research focused on a particular topic.
