Department of Psychology

Donate Online to Benefit the Psychology Department

The WIU Psychology Department relies on monetary gifts to secure some of the “extras” needed to better deliver educational services. Over the past several years, funds donated from friends and supporters like yourself have gone toward student scholarships, assistantships, student research and student employment; department lectures and other educational events; and equipment and materials needed to fulfill our educational mission.
