After more than 80 years of awarding degrees between the former Lewis Institute and IIT, the College of Psychology continues to grant more Ph.D.'s than any other college in the university and our alumni are 2,000 strong.
Psychology alumni can readily explain the critical role they fill and the vital contributions they provide to IIT and society. In addition, because the College is the only program in the country that provides a unique combination of clinical, rehabilitation, and industrial/organizational psychology, our students are extremely desirable by employers upon their graduation.
This blend of training lays claim to the following impacts our alumni have on society:
- enhance the health and well-being of individuals
- provide life-changing opportunities for the disabled
- increase productivity in business environments
- provide meaning to technological and scientific advances in a global society
One could argue that Psychology touches everyone in one or more ways over a lifetime. Our graduates most likely will deliver services either directly or indirectly to you, your family, your friends, or employees.
Not only do our alumni contribute in many ways to our communities but within IIT too. Our alumni have increasingly given back. They have presented to students, contributed their financial resources and volunteered to recruit new students or help with events to heighten awareness of our program.
Since becoming a College, Psychology has focused on reconnecting after years of little or no contact. While we can't redo the past, we can offer an invitation for you to take a fresh look and participate in our future. We honor and value the success of our alumni and look forward to keeping in touch.
