The Roy and Deborah Lewicki Scholarship Fund supports doctoral degree students in the Social-Organizational Psychology Program. The scholarship honors TC Professor Emeritus Morton Deutsch, and will be awarded to students conducting research in the field of conflict resolution or social justice, with a preference for those focusing their research in the greater New York area.
The late Morton Deutsch launched the field of conflict resolution during the Cold War, on the premise that cooperation brings opponents to a common ground, while competition undermines trust. Deutsch believed that while humans may continue to engage in violence and war, such conflict is not inevitable. The Morton Deutsch Endowed Fellowship Fund provides ongoing support for students in TC’s Social and Organizational Psychology program who are studying conflict resolution.
The James L. Williams Endowed Fellowship Fund provides support for students who are studying conflict resolution at the Morton Deutsch International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution (MD-ICCCR) at Teachers College, Columbia University. The fellowship honors the late James L. Williams, a long-time associate of the MD-ICCCR. James previously served as co-Associate-Director of the Center and was a beloved and innovative instructor, establishing or contributing to the development of several of the Center’s early courses in Conflict Resolution and Mediation. James was also a highly respected consultant, working with educational institutions, businesses and other non-profit organizations on issues of leadership, diversity, conflict and change. His impact on the Center was foundational and formative.
