In 2002, the Stephan D. Weiss Foundation was established to support student mental health and to encourage students to learn the values, develop the character and achieve the mastery required to emancipate into successful and productive adulthood.  The Foundation invites sponsorships with institutions of higher learning, private organizations and businesses in contributing to the development of the up-and-coming generations with the ultimate goal of encouraging and supporting young adults in their participation as vibrant community members.


As a member of the Board of Directors of the American College Health Foundation, he has endowed the Stephan D. Weiss Ph.D. Fund for Mental Health in Higher Education “to encourage development of initiatives that will enhance mental health service delivery to students” by sponsoring an annual Weiss Writing Prize and the Weiss Student Mental Health Award to “foster creative thinking, applied research and program implementation that will promote the mental health of students engaged in higher education.”
