In the Spirit of Norman Henry Anderson's Generosity

Norman Anderson

If you are one of our psychology alumni, you may remember Professor Emeritus Norman Anderson from your time here at UC San Diego. Since he joined the fledgling university in 1965, many generations of students have benefited from his knowledge, guidance and insight. His research, which focuses on the General Theory of Information Integration, is credited with opening up new horizons in psychology.

Always interested in helping students, Dr. Anderson has invested much of his time and money for their benefit. Through gifts, he has created a psychology student research and travel fund that benefits both undergraduate and graduate students, along with a lectureship series fund and an endowed fellowship fund. These gifts help the Psychology Department offer valuable academic experiences.

In the spirit of Dr. Anderson’s generosity, we invite alumni and friends to also give to these causes. Many of you already have done so and we thank you for your support.
