About Us

The Parents Program offers a variety of services for parents and families of Penn State, University Park students.

Most importantly, we are here to partner with parents and families in order to ensure student success, provide opportunities for their engagement with the University, and educate them about resources and services available within the University community.

Our staff is available to answer questions, make referrals, and provide timely information to assist parents and families with their student throughout their stay at Penn State.

Our program goals are to:

  • Serve as a central resource for parents and families;
  • Enhance parent and family involvement opportunities throughout the University community;
  • Provide information about the student experience at Penn State; and
  • Communicate regularly with parents and families
