Dr. Grundman is Assistant Professor of Integrative Studies in the Psy.D. program, teaching courses on the nature of the person, rational moral development, and friendship, marriage, and family life. He also serves as AVP of Academic Affairs for Digital Learning—Special Projects (PT). Professional interests include questions of realist metaphysics; philosophical and theological anthropology; moral and emotional development and decline; virtue and vice; fundamental human reasonableness; pedagogy generally; and the integration of a Catholic-Christian vision of the person with psychology and neuroscience, especially through educating current and future mental health professionals.
Joining the Institute for Psychological Sciences full-time in 2010, his experience includes serving as the first Director (and later as AVP) of Digital Learning and Innovation at DMU, co-leading the development of the university’s first two online programs and their courses (MS in Psychology, MS in Counseling), as well as its online certificate in Spiritual Direction. These roles provided an opportunity for exposure to a broad range of psychological sciences and principles for clinical practice, as well as for deepening integrative thinking.
Prior to joining the Institute for Psychological Sciences and Divine Mercy University, Dr. Grundman taught undergraduates and seminarians, addressed lay audiences, and worked in the fields of evangelization, catechesis, and fundraising.
