UArts Families celebrate on UArts Weekend

Parent & Family Council

Our Mission

The Parent & Family Council is a group of parents and guardians of current UArts students who are dedicated to advancing the University’s educational mission through enrollment efforts, fundraising, and fostering awareness among all parents of the university's needs and programs. The Parent & Family Council members participate in monthly conference calls, and bi-annual meetings on campus each academic year. 

About the Council

  • Each year, UArts accepts interest/applications from first-year and sophomore parents/guardians from August through November

  • Applications/interest are reviewed by the Office of Alumni & Parent Relations and the Parent & Family Council chair

  • Parents/guardians are notified of their application outcome via an invitation letter from the Office of Alumni & Parent Relations

  • Accepted parents/guardians will attend their first scheduled Parent & Family Council Meeting in April

  • All Parent & Family Council members are expected to sign and adhere to a member agreement document
