Betty Neitzel Memorial Award

Betty Jane Neitzel earned her Master's degree in 1951 from our department with a specialization in Industrial/Organizational psychology.  Her Master's thesis is titled "The communication of supervisory functions and its relationship to employee attitude".  She was always grateful to WSU because it provided her with money that allowed her to finish her Master's degree.  Her estate made a substantial donation to the psychology department in 2015.  A portion of these funds was used to establish The Betty J. Neitzel Memorial Award, which is to be given to a doctoral candidate in Industrial/Organizational Psychology at Wayne State University for excellence in research/scholarship.
