Dr. Bringle has been involved in the development, implementation, and evaluation of educational programs directed at talented undergraduate psychology majors, high school psychology teachers, first-year students, and the introductory psychology course. As a social psychologist, he is widely known for his research on jealousy in close relationships. In his previous position as executive director of the IUPUI Center for Service and Learning (1994–2012), his work resulted in an expansion of the number of service learning courses, a curriculum for faculty development, a Community Service Scholars program, an America Reads tutoring program, and a HUD Community Outreach Partnership Center.
The IUPUI service learning program was ranked eighth best in the nation among all colleges and universities in 2002 and has been listed among the best programs each subsequent year. IUPUI received a Presidential Award in 2006 as part of the first President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. Dr. Bringle consults with other campuses, on national initiatives, and internationally (e.g., South Africa, Macedonia, Mexico, Egypt, Ireland, Malaysia, Japan) on issues related to community service and civic engagement.
