When you support the Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology, you help pave the way for the practitioners of tomorrow, who will go on to change the lives of the people in need of psychological support.

Why Give?

You’ll join a group of donors who are shaping the lives of our alumni, students, faculty and staff. You’ll continue the legacy of Gordon F. Derner, who created the nation’s first university-based professional school of psychology.

Your donation goes to:

  • Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology
  • Derner Memorial Fund
  • Patrick Ross Fellowship Fund
  • George Stricker Endowment Fund
  • Derner Postgraduate Programs Scholarship Fund

Why do I give? I can’t quantify the lives saved by our dedicated individuals in hospitals and clinics. Our students, through hard work and dedication, make a difference. I cherish the teaching, the sense of community, and the transformative impact of this place. Since coming here, my entire life has changed—thanks to the people I’ve met, the experiences, and the unparalleled training, a testament to Gordon’s legacy.
