Dr. Brunner decided to found a non-profit research center and foundation after deciding that his ultimate vision was to focus on how behavioral science could be used to cultivate and strengthen the most noble character attributes. The name of the center is the Center for Character Strength Investment (CSI). and is based in Tucson, Arizona. Part of this center’s Mission was defined as developing better tools to help counsel youth toward positive character development. More information is available at the Foundation tab on the main menu.
