There have been many changes since you were a graduate student in the Department of Psychology. The most visible change has been the department's move, in 1986, from 4230 Ridge Lea Road to Park Hall on the North Campus of the University at Buffalo . Several faculty and staff from whom you took courses and with whom you worked have retired in the past few years: Gail Bruder, Barbara Bunker, Roger Burton, Paul Faleski, Roy Ford, Lee Gordon, Tony Graziano, Ed Hovorka, Jim Julian, Ken Kurtz, Murray Levine, Joe Masling, Dean Pruitt, Erwin Segal, Sid Shrauger, Norm Solkoff, and C. Jim Smith. Of course, many of you will remember other professors from earlier decades: Irv Biederman, Dick Bugelski, Ira Cohen, Walter Cohen, Marvin Feldman, Ed Hollander, Ed Katkin, Jim Marcia, Neil Murray, Bob Rice, Egan Ringwall, Barry Rubin, Ed Vinacke, and Rose Weinstein. Fortunately, the department has continued to recruit many exceptionally strong research and teaching faculty, especially in the past few years. Please look elsewhere on the department's web site for up-to-date descriptions of our faculty and programs.

We frequently receive inquiries from our graduates wanting to know if they can make contributions to support the department's activities and especially to support graduate students and research. The answer is yes! Contributions may be made to several funds already established:

  • The Dr. B. R. Bugelski Fellowship Fund for the benefit of graduate students in the Department of Psychology.

  • The Eleanor Jacobs Scholarship Fund for the benefit of undergraduate and graduate women students in the Department of Psychology.

  • The Marvin Feldman and Walter Cohen Award in Psychology, a prize to a graduating senior for distinguished honors achievement.

  • The Robert W. Rice Memorial Award for Early Excellence in Research for an empirical research paper completed by a graduate student.

Alternatively, contributions may be made to the Department of Psychology in general in recognition of a particular faculty member, mentor, staff member, instructor, student, or colleague. General contributions may be made to the "Psychology Department Resource Fund," which is managed by the UB Foundation, and mailed to the Department of Psychology, Park Hall, University at Buffalo -The State University of New York, Buffalo , New York 14260-4110.

Many of the faculty and staff, as well as your fellow graduates, would be delighted to have news of your professional and personal life. You are welcome to send news to be posted on this Graduate Alumni News webpage. Send an e-mail to Jack Meacham at This might be an easy way for you to re-establish contact with graduate school friends. In the past, the format for entries on this page has included only name, title, affiliation, and date of most recent information. However, we welcome additional information, such as the date of your degree, the name of your dissertation advisor, important achievements, perhaps some brief personal information, and your e-mail address, if you would like to be contacted..

This web page is not intended as an exhaustive list of the department's graduates. The UB Alumni Association ( maintains a list of all graduates and addresses, and Glo Aniebo-Williams, Assistant to the Chair ( ) in the Department of Psychology, also accepts updated addresses.
