Message from the Chair


Dear Alumni and Friends,

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, please visit the News & Awards and Events pages on the Department's website. You can also "like" us on Facebook and join us on Twitter and LinkedIn.

The Alumni page of our website provides information on how you can keep in touch with us, while the Alumni Spotlights page has profiles of select alumni and will in the future include news about our annual Distinguished Alumnus Award. Look for a new Alumni Survey to be posted here soon after New Years so you can share with us about your experiences while a student in our department, and let us know what you've been up to since graduation.

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,

Jacqueline Woolley
Chair, Department of Psychology
