Message from the Chair
I received my doctoral degree from the University of Michigan, but came to Texas as soon as I could! I joined the UT Department of Psychology in 1990 as an assistant professor—straight out of graduate school—and have been here ever since. Since joining our faculty, I have had a special interest in building alumni relations. As you might guess, the Department of Psychology is one of the largest teaching departments in the United States. We teach thousands of undergraduates each year and, at the same time, have one of the strongest graduate training programs in the world.
One of the dangers of having a program that is so large is that it can feel more challenging for former students to connect with us. We would like to change that. If you would be interested in working with us in building a new alumni outreach program, please contact us.
To keep up with recent activities and other aspects of the Department, visit the News & Awards and Events pages on the Department's website, and Like us on Facebook! Join us also on Twitter and LinkedIn. The Alumni & Giving page of our website provides information on how you can keep in touch with us, has profiles of select alumni, and gives news about our annual Distinguished Alumnus Award. Please use our alumni survey to let us know what you've been up to since graduation and alert us of any changes to your contact information.
Much of our success depends on the financial and social support of our alumni and friends. Please have a look at the Psychology Department endowment programs listed here to see which one is right for you.
Thank you very much,
Chair, Department of Psychology
