Calling all Psychology alum: now you can help a student with Huskies@Work, UW Alumni Association’s job shadowing program! Psychology is one of the most dynamic majors on campus: with a degree under their belt, students can pursue careers in research, clinical therapy, business, community service, and virtually any other field. As an alum, you can play a part in their path to choosing a career by showing them what can be possible after graduation.
The Ned Wagner Memorial Endowment was established by clinical psychology faculty and alumni after the untimely passing of Dr. Nathaniel “Ned” Wagner, then the Director of Clinical Training. Ned played a pivotal role in developing the clinical psychology program into a premier one during his tenure as DCT between 1978 and his death in 1996. During that time, Ned created fund using moneys from his own speaking engagements to support clinical students’ travel to conventions. Since its establishment, hundreds of students have travelled to conferences to present their work, further their knowledge, and careers in academia, industry, and beyond.
As UW psychology rounds out our 100th year as a department, we aim to partner with local organizations that share our goals of promoting social equity, optimizing human potential, and understanding the mind through behavior and brain science. As such, we’re introducing opportunities for forward-thinking organizations to foster the next generation of leaders in psychology through support of our weekly PhD student seminars. We're pleased to recognize Microsoft Research as our inaugural partner.
Philanthropic contributions from alumni and friends provide tremendous support for our students and help to expand our research initiatives. Keep an eye out for updates as your gift are put to work! Names appear in alphabetical order.
