Several ideas for research are under consideration but await adequate funding and/or faculty interest. Among the studies being considered are the following:
|Contemplative Wisdom and Altruistic Service||an investigation of the link between the contemplative life of a sponsoring religious order and the education of high school students in altruistic service in those schools administered by that religious order|
|The Effect of "Faith at Work" on Economic Productivity||a proxy measure, based on perceived fairness on the part of employees, to study the correlation between this spiritual movement and business success|
|Emotionality and the Human Person||an investigation of the mind-body problem in the thought of St. Francis de Sales as elucidated by modern brain research; seeks to demonstrate a necessary link between emotions and the development of rationality, in contrast to reductionist views of human nature|
|Heroic Holiness||a study of the background and influence of religion on the work and careers of first responders|
|High School Athletes & Moral Reasoning||a longitudinal study on the difference that participation in scholastic sports activity may have on the development of moral reasoning abilities among high school students|
|The Home School Advantage?||an investigation into the "home school" phenomenon and its outcomes in terms of admission, retention, and graduation at the university level|
