Parent & Family Relations

Parent & Family Relations

Parent & Family Relations is committed to engaging parents and families as University of Denver community members through sharing information and support. We consider parents and families to be essential partners in student success and University development and we recognize that the word "parent" includes many identities - that the parents who support our students could also include grandparents, extended family, partners and friends.

Families are encouraged to get involved by joining the DU Parents Association.

We believe that by building strong relationships with parents and families, being intentional about valuing the diverse views of parents and families, and providing resources designed to meet your needs, we show parents and family members that DU is their community as well. Living this culture and keeping our doors open for you cultivates the positive and healthy learning environment University of Denver students will enjoy for years to come.

We support family engagement with programming that brings parents and families into a positive partnership with the University so we can all support student educational success and persistence to graduation. Discover the value of a DU education by reading our Undergraduate Outcomes website.

Parent & Family Relations is a proud part of Campus Life, the centralized hub for student resources and activities. Encourage your student to become involved with Campus Life by visiting the Student Activities website where they can find information about Student Organizations, events, campus activities, and many other ways to become involved with fellow DU students outside of the classroom.

Thank you for trusting us with your students during this exciting time of growth and transition. Contact me any time with your questions or to find out how you can become more involved with the University of Denver.
