Apply to join the Parent & Family Council

Parent and Family Council members at Freshman Move-InAre you interested in getting involved at Mason by serving as an ambassador to current and prospective families? If so, consider joining the Parent and Family Council!

The Parent and Family Council was established by Orientation and Family Programs and Services as a way to enhance communication between the university and families, and to foster an opportunity for families to become engaged and informed members of the Mason community.

The Council meets twice a year on the Fairfax campus to learn more about the university, plan programs and events to involve parents and families, and contribute knowledge of the student experience to help inform practices at Mason. Council members are also required to attend at least two events throughout the year as a way to further connect to families of current Mason students.

We currently have openings on the Council and will be accepting applications through Friday, November 3. For more information on the expectations of Council members and the application process, visit
