Wendy R. Cutler Memorial Fund

Wendy R. Cutler, Ph.D., passed away June 4, 2006 after a five year valiant battle against breast cancer. For 10 years, Wendy was a valued staff member of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) where she was also the Assistant Director of Training. Even while facing a serious illness, Wendy lived life to the fullest. She will be remembered not only for her great professional contributions but also for her warmth, compassion, sense of humor, and her infectious laugh. 

Wendy had a strong commitment to students. She also was an advocate for those whose voices were silenced by parts of society. For example, she was actively involved in the Northwestern University LGBTQI Support Network and provided numerous trainings for the Safe Space Program. In 2002, she won the LGBTQI Support Network Above and Beyond Award for her work with the LGBTQI community at NU. 

To honor Wendy’s legacy, the Wendy R. Cutler Memorial Fund has been established. This fund will be used by Counseling and Psychological Services of Northwestern University solely for the growth and continued development of the psychology training program.
