The University Fellows Parents Council supports our mission by providing opportunities for families to volunteer, financially support, and represent the program. The inaugural council established the Student Assistance Fund, which offers financial assistance to Fellows with demonstrated need. In the spring, they play a vital role in hosting prospective parents on Interview Day. In addition, parent volunteers coordinate the commencement reception for each class of graduates.

Parents Council Opportunities:

  • Two planning meetings each year (Family Weekend and Step Sing Weekend)
  • Volunteer opportunities (Family Weekend, Interview Day, commencement reception, recruitment)
  • A chance to represent the program to prospective parents 
  • Support the program financially and promote financial stewardship from other parents 

If you are interested in joining the University Fellows Parents Council or are a prospective parent who wants to hear from our current parents, please contact our chairs, Jim and Deb McGhee.
