Ways to Give to the Psychology Department

The Department of Psychology seeks to involve our alumni and friends in a program of charitable giving. We are currently seeking funds for the Department of Psychology Gift Fund. The fund is intended to support undergraduate and graduate student awards, students and faculty research projects, and other projects and activities that enhance the vitality of the department.

A central component of the Department of Psychology’s development plan is the establishment of a Psychology Endowment. The endowment fund will be used to support undergraduate scholarships, graduate student fellowships, and named professorships.
