Partnering with Families

We know you have worked so hard to support your student in becoming a Duck. And we know that your student's success is not a coincidence. We believe in partnering with you to support your student and we consider you part of the Duck family as well. There are a number of ways you can be involved, stay connected, and help your student navigate college life. Whatever your needs or interests are, we hope you find what you are looking for, but if you don't please feel free to reach out and ask us.

Parents Leadership Council

As a member of the Parents Leadership Council, parents help us shape the student experience. The council meets regulary with our vice president for student life to advise campus leadership on critical decisions and issues facing our students. In addition, our Parents Leadership Council members help us encourage family engagement, cultivate philanthropic support for the Division of Student Life, and serve on a team supporting the pillars of the Parents Leadership Council—safety and wellness, leadership, and career development.

Ask a Parent

It is often hard to know where to get started in seeking answers to your questions. For this reason, we have parent volunteers and regional representatives willing to talk with you about any questions you may have pertaining to the UO. Through the regional representatives, we connect you with fellow Duck parents near you and create a network through the shared experience of being a part of the UO community.
