🎓 Announcing CGU's Honorary Doctorate Recipient & Commencement Speaker: Jennifer Freyd, PhD! 🌟

Freyd is a theoretician, author, and Professor Emerit of Psychology at the University of Oregon. With over 30 years of experience researching people and their relationships with institutions, Freyd introduced the concepts of institutional courage, institutional betrayal, DARVO, and betrayal trauma.

In 2020 she founded the Center for Institutional Courage. The center, a nonprofit dedicated to research and education, defines institutional courage as a commitment to seek truth and engage in moral action, despite unpleasantness, risk, and short-term cost. It transforms institutions into becoming more accountable, equitable, and effective for everyone.

“For me, it’s taking the time to think about what I really care the most about and prioritize and then say, ‘Is my living consistent with those values?’ and if I’m not, then adjusting what I am doing.”

Learn more about the theme for this year’s commencement and the way that keynote speaker and honorary doctorate recipient Jennifer Freyd approaches life by reading the blog:
