Parents Association Council

The purpose of the Parents Association Council is to engage families with the University community, encourage parent awareness of campus life and involvement during events, help other parents navigate the University community, generate ideas for parent and family programming, and participate as volunteers during events or programs. During meetings we often hear presentations from University administrators and staff to learn more about campus life, long range planning projects, and student activities.
