About US

The University of Central Florida Marriage and Family Research Institute was created in 2003 to support and strengthen healthy relationships for individuals, couples and families.

We are committed to conducting and disseminating rigorous research that contributes to the understanding of relationships and provides useful clinical applications.  We are invested in collaborating with our community partners to enrich the lives of individuals, couples and families.  It is our goal to make our services inclusive and accessible to the widest reach of people across race, ethnicity, ability, religion, class, culture, and sexual orientation. We are also committed to the continuous care, development and support of our Institute team, as we know that passion and compassion must begin with ourselves.
