PLU Parents Council

The PLU Parents Council, sponsored by the Office of Alumni and Constituent Relations, is comprised of parents of full-time undergraduate students at PLU. Their objective is to generate and maintain the goodwill and support of student families. Parents Council members help to inform other parents about aspects of the university, strive to promote the welfare and advancement of the university, and to encourage members to participate in Parents Council projects. Activities include serving as hosts in residence halls and hosting question/answer session for parents during orientation, phoning new parents to the university in the parent-to-parent calling program, and serving as resource persons in local communities.
