Hear from students describing their experience at the Townsend Institute Kickoff Conference

You will begin your term with a 4-day virtual kick-off conference with your community of fellow students where Dr. Townsend, Townsend Institute Faculty, and Fellows will conduct a series of trainings to jump-start your graduate program.

Graduate Students enrolled in COUN 600, EXCC 600, or ORGL 600 will connect online with your cohort in a guided-process group experience to earn your first three credits, where you will learn to unpack key moments in your life story and grow your character.

We welcome current students and alumni who have already completed their 600 course to return to the conference. You will need to register for TWN699 in order to attend. TWN699 as a class is the conference only, there will not be homework or class meetings outside of the conference. Please register according to your current or completed program.

I’ve learned the vitality of being a forever student...comprehending that we are perfectly imperfect. Those things that have happened to us, or to our clients, are the things they can use to fuel their passions and make them better.

How do you encapsulate knowledge, wisdom, healing, and inspiration into an deeply spiritual experience and put it into a word? This is life changing. This is horizontal and vertical. This is three dimensional. You will grow from the first week and your relationships will change if you go in. This is where you want to be…

I would absolutely recommend this program. It is so rich. It is scripturally based, it is business driven, but it’s got this undergirding of the psychological principles. I feel like it uses all the areas of your brain and will just make you better at relationships.
