After 30 years of service to George Mason and its students, Walter Moretz, a professor in the Psychology Department, will retire after this semester. He is already on a final-semester sabbatical, and has moved to his new home in Amherst, Virginia, but there will be an opportunity to say goodbye to him and to honor his service to the university. On Tuesday, May 8, as part of commencement week festivities, the Psychology Department will host a reception in Moretz’s honor from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Johnson Center Multipurpose Room. A buffet supper will be served.

All George Mason students, alumni, faculty, and staff who have worked with Moretz are invited. Tickets are $15 to cover the cost of food, and attendees must RSVP to Jamilla Thompson at x31384 or

The Psychology Department is also establishing an undergraduate scholarship fund named in his honor. Details are available to those who are interested.
