Helen Landgarten Scholars

Helen B. Landgarten

In 1988, when Helen Landgarten retired, the department inaugurated the Helen Landgarten Scholar award, given to one graduating student each year.

Academic success, recognized competency in practicum and leadership skills are all evaluated in the selection process.

We are proud of our Helen Landgarten Scholars, each of whom is continuing their legacy of excellence in deepening and broadening the field of art therapy.
