Professor Illene Noppe Cupit received her Ph.D. in 1979 from the Educational Psychology Department of Temple University. Dr. Cupit came to UW-Green Bay in January of 1984, where she currently teaches courses in Dying, Death, and Loss, First Year Seminars, Gender Development, and Developmental Research Methodology.

She has been a Teaching Fellow, recently completed the Online Teaching Fellows program, and received a Faculty Developmental Council award for excellence in teaching. Her research and publications have focused on college student bereavement, the influence of the Internet on grief and death education, adolescent grief, gender issues in death and dying, and death in child care centers. She recently co-edited the book, Dying, death and grieving in an online universe, which was published in 2012 by Springer.

She is an active member of the Association of Death Education and Counseling (ADEC), where she was editor of The Forum, its quarterly publication, and was the President for 2012 - 2013. For the past six years, Illene has organized a “Teaching that Matters” symposium at the annual conference, which is always well-attended and receives much praise from the attendees. In addition, she founded and directs Camp Lloyd, a week-long summer day camp for grieving children which involves our students as the “Big Buddies” to our campers.

In her miniscule spare time Dr. Cupit enjoys traveling, running, swimming, cycling, playing the piano, reading, cooking, and then eating the fruits of her labor!
