CAPR Mission Statement

The faculty members in CAPR apply scientific methods and knowledge of psychology to the solution of problems in individuals, communities, and society. The faculty advance scientific research and theory in addition to solving practical problems. CAPR is one of the original Tennessee Centers of Excellence that was established in 1984. CAPR is now designated an Accomplished Center of Excellence, in recognition of the Center's consistently high quality of research, teaching, and service over the years. During the last decade, faculty in the CAPR have brought in and expended over $30 million in external funding, published over 1500 scholarly works, and graduated hundreds of masters and doctoral students. For every $1 invested in CAPR by the State of Tennessee, the faculty currently bring in another $5.50 as PI's on external grants. The 33 faculty in CAPR cover six areas of specialization: (1) behavioral medicine and community psychology, (2) neuropsychology and behavioral neuroscience, (3) child and family studies, (4) cognitive and social processes, (5) psychotherapy and psychopathology, and (6) industrial and organizational psychology. In order to convey the scope of CAPR more concretely, some research projects that are currently funded by external grants are presented in the subsequent pages.
