Parent & Family Engagement

This office is committed to parents and families as University of Denver community members through sharing information and support. We consider you 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 Parent and Family 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.

At the University of Denver, we engage in a Culture of Care & Support for individuals and the campus community to maintain their safety, health, and well-being. Through our holistic collaboration we can work together to ensure that our students are connected to the appropriate resources to meet their goals and develop new skills in navigating challenging experiences.

To enhance engagement of parents and families as partners in our Culture of Care, we have developed a Parent & Family Feedback Form which can be used to inform us when your student is experiencing challenges so we can reach out to your students to provide care and support. This form can be accessed by clicking on the "Comments! Questions?" button on the right side of this page. The campus community will receive notices when this form has been completed and will follow up with you and your student.

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.
