Much of what the Parents Association will accomplish will depend on you, the members. However, the Association will provide you with:

  • an opportunity to play a supporting role in your student’s college experience
  • a forum for exchange with other parents
  • useful information and a chance to express concerns and make suggestions about campus resources
  • an opportunity to further the goals of Adelphi by improving communication between parents and the University.
