Parent and Family Resources

Welcome Parents & Families!

Welcome - we gathered some helpful links and resources to help you navigate the University!

Let us know if you can't find something you are looking for - we are happy to help!

With the admission of your family member into the University, we can promise special experiences that will change, excite and start a new chapter in your whole family’s life. Without question, your influence and guidance will remain strong as your student meets new academic challenges, grows academically and socially, and develops an expanding sense of independence.

We support our students’ ability to:

  • learn responsible decision-making
  • clarify personal values and identity
  • develop new interpersonal relationships
  • explore career options
  • promote the value of diversity and informed citizenship
