For Parents

​​Parent Engagement & Advancement

Welcome to the Washington University community! Washington University views parents as partners in the process of educating students, and we have a shared interest in their success.  We encourage you to fully engage with the university community in order to enhance your WashU experience. Among the ways to engage are:
Volunteering to host an event, welcome parents, or partner with the Career Center
Investing to enrich the student life experience and deepen your connection with the WashU community
Reading WashU publications to keep current on news
Parent Engagement & Advancement staff serve as liaisons between undergraduate parents and Washington University by providing resources, facilitating opportunities for engagement, and empowering families wishing to make an impact for the university. We look forward to visiting with you.

The Parent Engagement & Advancement office is proud to be recognized at the Gold Level through the Green Office Program.
