International Researcher Seeks Volunteers


Contributed by Scott Thomson

Katarzyna Pasternak, a PhD student in Psychology from John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin in Poland, is visiting Ithaca College to conduct research for part of her dissertation.  Her research examines cross cultural aspects of the relationship between imagination and meaning in life.

 Katarzyna is hoping members of the Ithaca College community will participate.  Anyone over 18 years old is welcome, participation requires filling out a survey on a computer which usually lasts about 20 minutes.  The survey is anonymous and entails minimal risk (no more than in one's everyday life).

She will be on campus on June 26-28 and July 1-3.  The survey can be taken in room 303 of Williams Hall from 1pm til 3pm and from 5pm til 6pm.

The research is approved by Ithaca College's IRB (IRB approval #61). If you have questions feel free to contact Katarzyna at


Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Scott Thomson at or (607) 274-3670. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.
