If you would like an opportunity to have your voice heard on important issues relating to your son's or daughter's university education, consider applying for membership to be on the Parent Council. Parent Council is an important group in the life of the university, acting as advisory and support group for a wide variety of campus programs. The council meets three times a year, in September, January, and April, to talk about ways to support the educational experience of George Fox students.
Parents apply for membership on the Council, which is held at under 32 individuals, and serve for four-year terms while their students are enrolled as undergraduates at George Fox University. It has been active since the 1998-99 academic year. Parent Council applications are due prior to the start of the school year on August 15.
Parent Council is an advisory council to the university president and his/her administration and will work through the Office of Alumni & Parent Relations. The purpose of the Parent Council is to foster communication between the university and parents of its students in order to improve the quality of the university experience for George Fox students and their parents. Further, the Parent Council will work to preserve and strengthen the broader mission of the university. The council will serve to represent and reflect the views of current parents and, conversely, assist in communicating with parents about the goals and plans of the university.
