Make a Gift

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 to continue to offer the best training to our doctoral students.

Even a modest donation can be very helpful in supporting the research, clinical, and teaching activities of our graduate students. Please consider helping the Department capitalize on our many strengths by making a tax-deductible contribution. We offer special thanks to our alumni and friends. Your generous support and contributions have enabled many opportunities for the Clinical Psychology Program.
