The Samford parent leadership team is made up of Samford Parent Advisory Board members and leaders of the Samford Parents Association. These two groups work with the Office of Parent and Family Programs to strengthen the relationship between the university and the parents of undergraduate students.
The Samford Parent Advisory Board
The Samford University Parent Advisory Board (PAB) works to support the university’s Christian mission to nurture persons in their development of intellect, creativity, faith and personhood. Board members have a first-hand understanding of the impact the university has on students and their families. Members seek to strengthen the relationship between the university and the parents of current undergraduate students; encourage relationships within the Samford family; positively represent the university to others; and financially support the university.
Samford Parents Association Leaders
The Samford Parents Association (SPA) is made up of dedicated parents who, while affirming the mission of Samford University, support university goals; support the educational and developmental success of students; and seek to inform, support, and connect Samford parents and families. This group is led by association officers and state chapter chairs. Officers and state chapter chairs serve for a minimum of one year with the possibility of being asked to serve additional years.
