The Parent Program is a resource for parents and supports Cal Poly students. Services are designed to enhance student learning by facilitating communication between and among parents and the University; support students’ ability to solve problems by increasing their parents’ awareness of University resources; and enhance student success by helping parents develop strategies to meet the unique challenges of parenting students throughout their college years.


Staff can be reached via the program’s helpline and e-mail address. Parent information and resources are provided through a website, a quarterly e-newsletter, and a Cal Poly Parents Facebook page.

 The Parent Program oversees the Parent Program Advisory Council, welcomes parents and supporters at orientation events, and hosts an annual Parent and Family Weekend.
