Parent & Family
Share |


The purpose of the Parent & Family Network is to identify and address the unique orientation and transition programming needs of parents and family members of new college/university students and to appropriately develop orientation formats and programs to accommodate parents and family members. Parents and families play an increasingly critical role in the successful matriculation of students and frequently turn to university personnel seeking information and support. Orientation and transition programs provide a valuable avenue to introduce and connect parents and families with university information, services and programs. The Parent & Family Network will generate discussion toward Parent Orientation programs, Parent Services Departments, Parent/Family Weekend programs, and Parents' Associations.

 Network Webinar

Leveraging Technology to Engage Parents and Family Members

When: Tuesday, January 23, 2018 - 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. CST 
Cost: Free to the network
Presenters: Dr. Brett Bruner, Director of Transition & Student Conduct at Fort Hays State University, and Jennifer Radwanski, Director of New Student & Family Programs at Stockton University

Parents and family members of college students have a profound influence on the student experience. As programming to engage parents and family members grows, institutions should address the effectiveness of the historical pillars of family programming and identify how professionals can leverage technology to assist this process (Lovell, Oaks, & Kline, 2017). This session will describe how two different institutions have embraced technology to engage parents and family members.
