In Memoriam

Nancy Fawcett headshotIt is with tremendous sadness we share that Nancy Fawcett has passed away.  Nancy’s love for Antioch flowed in many directions. She was an alumna of the graduate psychology program, a popular adjunct faculty member for more than 20 years, and in 2011 helped to found the Alumni Council.

Nancy majored in education and for 13 years worked as a teacher of young children, work she truly loved.  A cross-country move brought her to California where she worked in television as a content editor on children’s and adult programming.  Simultaneously, she was in group therapy, which is what led her to further pursue her education in AULA’s MA in Clinical Psychology Program and become a psychotherapist.  In 1988, she became a licensed marriage and family therapist and has been in private practice since.  Over that time, she resumed her teaching career and has been an Adjunct Professor at AULA, teaching process classes in the MA in Psychology Program. In 2011 she founded the Alumni Council and was one of AULA’s most generous and consistent donors.

Nancy was deeply devoted to Antioch University and was beloved by the many who knew her.  In 2013, Nancy received the Alumni Association Award for Outstanding Service.  This award is given to alum whose volunteer service to the University and its students has had exceptional and lasting impact. Nancy had an enormous impact on the lives of those around her, and it’s now our responsibility to carry on her legacy.

There will be a memorial for Nancy on Friday, March 31 at 2pm at All Saints Episcopal Church, 504 N. Camden Avenue, Beverly Hills, CA 90210. A reception will follow in the parish hall. For more information and to express your condolences, please visit her Memorial Page.

Nancy’s family has requested than in lieu of flowers, any gifts in her memory should be designated to Antioch University’s Alumni Scholarship Fund or Bridge program.
