Family Services at Cal U

Cal U is dedicated to serving parents and families of our students by providing two complementary programs.

The Parent/Family Program focuses on enhancing student academic success at Cal U. In order to facilitate that effort, it also includes a Parent/Guest Portal through which a University student may grant access to his or her records to a parent or guest.

The Parent and Alumni Relations Program focuses on encouraging active family participation at Cal U.

"Cal U is committed to student success. We value the important role that families can play in academic achievement, and we welcome you as active partners in the process.  As the Director of Parent and Family Engagement I strive to support you as you mentor your student through the college years.

When your child goes off to college, in some ways, you do, too. Questions come up along the way, and I'm here to help."

"The Parent Program and parent and alumni related activities were created to keep you engaged and informed. There are many ways to become an active member of the Cal U community. I encourage you to be a part of your child’s Cal U experience by participating in programs and activities on and off campus and supporting the annual fund through the Senior Gift Drive parent match.

I look forward to meeting and working with you."
