Dr. Norman Scott began his career at Iowa State University over 45 years ago and played a pivotal role in shaping the Department of Psychology until his retirement in 2017. To honor Dr. Scott’s years of service to ISU and the field of Psychology, the Psychology department hopes to establish a scholarship in his name. To make the scholarship a reality, we need to raise $50,000. Currently, ISU alumni, faculty, staff, and colleagues of Dr. Scott have helped to raise $40,000 for the scholarship. That leaves us with a goal of $10,000. We are seeking your help in raising this last portion of the funds.
Norm Scott: Professor, Mentor, Clinician, Teacher
A memorable professor, Dr. Scott taught thousands of Iowa State students in classes such as Abnormal Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Psychopathology, and Counseling Theories and Techniques. He was known as a wonderful mentor, and exhibited remarkable professionalism, ethical behavior, and professional practice. He worked with his students to ensure they understood the importance of these values in their academic and professional careers. Dr. Scott was an important mentor and advisor across a variety of undergraduate education committees and student organizations, such as Psychology Club and Psi Chi.
Dr. Scott has also been an active and important member of the Iowa Psychological Association (IPA) since the early 1970s. He served on many committees over the years and provided support and leadership to the organization. His lifelong commitment to educating generations of psychologists as a professor at Iowa State University has had wide-ranging impact.
We hope that you will partner with us to honor Norm's legacy through this endowment. What can you do? If you can donate to the fund, we would certainly appreciate that. However, we would also like the news of this to travel widely. If you are in touch with others who were connected to Norm or the Psychology Department, please share this with them. Thank you for your consideration and for helping us honor this wonderful colleague.
