Valparaiso University Parents Council

The mission of the Valparaiso University Parents Council is to serve an ambassadorial role promoting and supporting Valpo and act as a liaison between parents, students and the University. The Parents Council does this by providing various activities for parents, such as the Parents Council Welcome Tent on move-in day and Family Weekend in October. Parents Council members also are on hand during FOCUS, Valpo's new–student orientation, to provide a touch point for parents and answer questions. The Parents Council also reaches out to the parents of incoming students three times per year with the Valpo Parent newsletter. The group meets twice per year on campus, and membership is comprised of about 30 parents of current undergraduate students.
