Welcome!

The Family Science program is committed to UVU’s three core objectives for student outcomes, namely, providing serious, inclusive, and engaged educational experiences. Since 2008, we have facilitated community outreach and professional development through a student-led family life education program. Certified faculty supervise student interns each semester as they implement an evidence-based parenting program with families from Utah Valley as well as build community partnerships and donor support.

Julie Nelson is the Program Director and Field Coordinator for all Family Science Internships. Program Managing Director is Mackenzie Pranger, and Richard Hydo is Clinical Director. Social work students, MSWs and BSWs, provide leadership at each site and conduct clinical practice among families needing additional support services and therapy.
