Giving to the Department

The Department of Educational Psychology has for many years been ranked in the top five programs in Educational Psychology in the country. We have earned that reputation not simply because of the consistent accomplishments of our faculty in teaching, research, and scholarship, but because of the outstanding quality and success of our graduates. We are justifiably proud of our graduates and hope you feel the same sense of pride and continue to benefit from being a graduate or friend of our department.

The excellence of our academic program depends on your support. Operating an academic department in this era of declining state support for public research universities requires that we look to our alumni and friends to help us maintain that margin of excellence that sets us apart from other programs in the country. Private giving plays an increasingly important role in our ability to support the kind of first-rate doctoral education that characterizes our department here at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Please browse our web site to review our accomplishments and to learn more about our programs, faculty, staff, and students. If you have questions about the department, please contact me. I encourage you to stay involved and keep us informed about your personal and professional accomplishments.
