UT Professor and Team Awarded Multi-Million Dollar Grant to Study the Non-Religious
A research team that includes University of Tampa Professor Ryan Cragun has been awarded a 2.5 million Canadian dollar ($1.9 million) grant to study the social impact of the growing number of people who identify as having no religion.
The study aims to advance knowledge about nonreligion that will inform models of living well together in diverse and inclusive societies.
Cragun, who teaches in UT’s sociology department, is a co-investigator on an international team of eight. As a co-investigator, Cragun will help with the design of the research, data collection, analysis and writing up the results for various publications.
The principal investigator is Lori Beaman of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Ottawa.
The grant was awarded by the Canadian government’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
