Dr. Alvin Y. Wang Endowed Scholarship

The Dr. Alvin Y. Wang Endowed Scholarship honors the tenure of Dean Emeritus Alvin Wang, the second Dean of the Burnett Honors College and Professor of Psychology. Dr. Wang joined the university in 1986, and served the Burnett Honors College as Associate Dean for four years, and then Dean for twelve years until 2017. Under his leadership, the Burnett Honors College flourished, and some of his biggest accomplishments include: the outstanding academic achievements of the scholars, the creation of a philanthropic development office, an alumni relations program, and more than doubling the number of students involved in community engagement over the last decade. In honor of his servant leadership, parents, alumni, faculty and friends created an surprise endowment in his honor upon his stepping down from the Deanship in 2017.
