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.
