Department of Psychology at Illinois State University
Those who know Laura Berk will understand that she is unlikely to ever retire from her profession. How could she when there is no time to retire? Laura is always working on a new book or has just had one published, is in demand to give keynote addresses at conferences worldwide, and is supervising outstanding neophyte researchers.
To mark Laura’s formal retirement, however, the Department of Psychology held a celebration of her years and established an Illinois State University Foundation fund in her name. Laura designated the purpose of the fund and made a generous initial donation to what is now the Laura Berk Undergraduate Student Writing Award for psychology majors. Laura thanks friends and students who have made donations, and invites everyone to share in her support of excellence.
