In response to continued health restrictions, we convened a series of virtual Parents Council meetings to keep you informed and connected. During these gatherings, campus leadership shared updates, considerations that informed their thinking, and engaged in dialogue on issues of importance to parents.

As Parents Council members, you play a vital role in the Washington University community as our must supportive advocates and ambassadors. We value this special relationship and appreciate your discretion in sharing videos from the Parents Council meetings. We respectfully request that you limit sharing to other Parents Council members.
