Opening of the Koslow Center for Marriage and Family Therapy Creates Flurry of Activity for MFT Department

April 8th will mark the ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the new Kathryn P. Koslow Center for Marriage and Family Therapy. Fairfield University President, Jeffrey P. von Arx, S.J. will lead the ceremony, which will be followed by an open house and reception.

Through a generous donation by alumna Kathryn P. Koslow ’05, who is also a member of the GSEAP and Marriage and Family Therapy Advisory Boards, the University renovated Southwell Hall and installed state-of-the-art technology to create a new training facility for Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) graduate students. Under the supervision of professional faculty and supervisors, advanced graduate candidates provide clinical mental health services to individuals, couples and families from the greater Fairfield community.

The official opening for the Koslow Center is also getting attention from campus and local newspapers :  http://fairfieldmirror.com/2011/03/16/marriage-and-family-therapy-training-center-brings-opportunities-to-fairfield/), which has produced a steady stream of interest from the greater Fairfield community.
