Get Involved: Apply to Join the Parent and Family Council!

WP Family Council 1

Are you interested in getting involved at Mason by serving as an ambassador to current and prospective families? If so, consider joining Parent and Family Council and become actively engaged in the Mason community.

The Parent and Family Council was established by Orientation and Family Programs and Services as a way to enhance the communication between the University and families, to create awareness of the need for familial input and involvement at Mason, and to foster an opportunity for families to become engaged and informed members of the University community.

The Council will meet two times a year to learn more about Mason, plan programs and events to involve parents and families in the life of the University, and contribute knowledge of the student experience to help inform practices at Mason. There will also be a variety of volunteer events throughout the year that Council members will be encouraged to attend as a way to further connect to families of Mason students.

We currently have four openings on the Council and will be accepting applications until November 1, 2014. For more information on the expectations of Council members as well as the application process, please click here. If you are attending Family Weekend we will also be hosting an information session on October 18 at 11 am for those interested.

Don’t hesitate to contact Orientation and Family Programs and Services at or 703.993.2475 with any questions.
