Parent & Family Programs is a resource for the parents and supporters of Cal Poly students. Services are designed to enhance student success in the following ways: facilitate communication between and among parents and the University; support students’ ability to solve problems by increasing their parents’ awareness of University resources; and help parents develop strategies to meet the unique challenges of parenting students throughout the college years.
Staff can be reached via the program’s helpline and e-mail address. Parent and supporter information and resources are provided through the Cal Poly Parent VIP Portal, the Parent & Family Programs website, and a Parent & Family Programs social media.
Parent & Family Programs oversees the Parent Advisory Council, welcomes parents and supporters at orientation events, and hosts an annual Parent and Family Weekend.
