Ways To Give

Special Giving Opportunity

Jim Blascovich Campaign for Social Psychology at UCSB

The purpose of this gift fund is to enhance training and recruitment of graduate students in the social psychology program at UCSB. The UCSB Social Psychology Program is one of the premiere social psychological training programs in the world. It has produced a remarkable number of superb scholars, scientists, teachers, and leaders who hold positions of influence both inside and outside of academia. The Jim Blascovich Campaign for Social Psychology at UCSB has been created to honor Jim's many contributions to social psychology at UCSB and beyond on the occasion of his retirement after more than 40 years in the field. Please join us in honoring Jim Blascovich with a gift that continues the excellence of the UCSB Graduate Program in Social Psychology.


We offer a sincere thank you for your help in ensuring that the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences continues to be among the strongest in the nation.
