A Message from the Chair’s Office


State budget cuts hinder our ability to teach and mentor students, support faculty and student research, and reward excellence in teaching and research. To meet those challenges, and to provide students with a broad exposure to contemporary psychological research, we depend upon the contributions and commitment of alumni and friends of the department.  Thanks to the generosity of many of our alums and friends over the years, the Department has been able to enhance graduate and undergraduate study, and further our faculty recruitment and retention efforts.  We have been able to attract new faculty whose research shows the great innovations and advancements being made across our field, but we need your support to continue these efforts.  I hope you’ll share in my optimistic vision for the future of the Department.  Please consider helping the Department capitalize on our many strengths by making a tax-deductible contribution. I would like to offer special thanks to our alumni and friends. Your generous support and contributions have enabled many opportunities for the Department of Psychology.
