About


The Department of Psychological Science is working hard to train our students to understand the impact of the pandemic and the social justice movement and how to make science based decisions that will benefit and advance our understanding of the mind, society, and mental well-being. 

Thank you for your support!

Millions of people in the U.S. and around the world are experiencing the stress and anxiety of living in a pandemic. Loneliness, uncertainty, job loss, and even the death of loved ones are having an immediate and long-term impact on the everyone's mental health. Minorities are carrying an even greater burden as the pandemic is unequally influencing their families while also fighting for social justice. 

Your gift to the Department of Psychological Science will help our students, of all backgrounds and circumstances, become better equipped to make an impact in the world.

Thanks to support we received last year we were able to provide transportation to a practicum site in Battle Creek where a student learned the realities of running a domestic violence shelter.

Furthermore, we have used your gifts to support students presenting their research at local and national research conferences. This includes student’s travel and conference fees so they can present their research on mental health stigma to a wider audience. 

Whether it is a chance to experience first hand the field of psychology or to engage with others at a research conference, these experiences are crucial for our students to become more understanding and engaged citizens that have the tools to make a difference in this world. 

Your support means so much to our students. Thank you!
