Penn Vet announces the appointment of Caroline Fribourg Rosen to its Board of Overseers. Overseer boards serve as bridges between Penn’s schools and centers and the community beyond campus boundaries. The President, Provost, and Board of Trustees rely heavily on these boards to help inform the work of the schools and centers.
“I am delighted to welcome Caroline to Penn Vet’s Board of Overseers,” said Penn Vet Dean Joan Hendricks. “Caroline’s background and insight into students’ educational needs will be a welcome addition to the Board’s diverse expertise.”
Caroline Fribourg Rosen is founder of Your Child in Focus, an educational consulting company that counsels parents on selecting the right schools for their children in New York City. Rosen worked at a number of New York City independent schools, counseling students and advising administrators and faculty on children’s learning styles and needs. She was school counselor, head of pupil services, and assistant head of the middle school at The Nightingale-Bamford School, where she later served on the Board of Trustees. She graduated with a degree in psychology and French literature from Wellesley College in 1982 and received her MA and MEd in psychological counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University, in 1989. Rosen also conducted post-graduate work at the Ackerman Institute for the Family and was a facilitator for Parents in Action. She and her husband have raised two children in New York City.
Rosen’s daughter started at Penn Vet in August, and her family has longstanding ties to the University of Pennsylvania. Her husband received his MBA from the Wharton School. In addition, her father was one of the founding members of the Board of Governors of the
Joseph H. Lauder Institute for Management & International Studies, and her brother was Chairman of the Board of the Lauder Institute.
