Dean Hoge Chosen to Lead Life Cycle Institute

Dean Hoge, professor of sociology, becomes director of the Life Cycle Institute Sept. 1, replacing outgoing director James Youniss, professor of psychology.

Hoge, internationally known for research on issues of religion in contemporary society, was an original member of the institute, established as the Boys Town Center in 1974.

Hoge is the author of award-winning books including "Vanishing Boundaries," a study of generational differences among Presbyterians, and "Money Matters," a ground-breaking study of charitable giving across five religious denominations. With funding from the Lilly Endowment, he is currently completing a study on young Anglo and Hispanic Catholics’ view on religion, spirituality and the institutional Church. Hoge serves on several boards and committees, including the board of the Washington Theological Consortium.

After a sabbatical, Youniss will rejoin the institute as a researcher in areas of youth development.

Research at the institute comprises areas of religion and culture, youth development and social movements and civil society.
