Bryan Dik

Dik focuses on vocational psychology — a sense of calling in the work role; meaning, purpose, religion and spirituality in career development; vocational interest measurement; and computer-assisted career development interventions.

Dik has co-authored several books, including “Purpose and Meaning in the Workplace,” “Make Your Job a Calling: How the Psychology of Vocation Can Change Your Life At Work” and “The Psychology of Religion and Workplace Spirituality.” He is affiliated with several professional associations, including the American Psychological Association, the Christian Association for Psychological Studies and the Society for Vocational Psychology.

In 2008, Dik was recognized by Colorado State University with the Advisor Gratitude Award, and in 2010 he received the Society for Vocational Psychology Early Career Professional Award.

Dik received his B.A. in psychology from Calvin College in 1998 and his Ph.D. in counseling psychology from the University of Minnesota in 2005.
