Welcome to the psychology department at Iowa State University


The psychology department welcomes alumni and friends to our website: The department history page provides a detailed description of the development of the psychology department beginning with its first class in 1872. The department’s bi-annual Psychology Alumni Newsletter is great way to keep abreast of happenings in the department. The alumni spotlight page highlights the accomplishments and achievements of our alumni, so please tell us what you have been doing so that we may spotlight you on our website (send information to Stephanie Madon at madon@iastate.edu).  Finally, much of our success depends on the financial and social support of our donors. Please consider making a donation or endowment to the psychology department through the Iowa State Foundation and visit the major gifts page to learn about the generosity of the department’s current and former donors.
