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.

Join Our Community
The Parent and Family Association to the best way to stay connected to the UO and other Duck families. Membership benefits include our monthly e-newsletter, discounted access and priority registration to family events, and much more. The one-time fee provides membership for as long as your student—or any of their siblings—attends the UO.
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.
The Parent and Family Programs office is here to support you. Our team is available Monday–Friday, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time via e-mail or phone. We are happy to support you in any way you need, or to connect you with a collegue across campus. We value your involvement and appreciate any chance to connect.
Parents Leadership Council
As a member of the Parents Leadership Council, parents help us shape the student experience. The council meets regularly 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.
