The Parent Leadership Committee
Parent volunteers are an invaluable resource to the College. Volunteering for the Parent Leadership Committee puts you in a position to impact your student's experience at Union by providing leadership, feedback and recommendations to the College while promoting Union's mission and engaging with fellow parents.
Please consider joining our team of volunteers, where you will have the satisfaction of being actively involved in your child's college experience.
Parent Leadership Committee consists of three sub-committees:
Members can contribute to the monthly e-newsletter that goes out to all Union parents, provide input on direct mail campaigns and sign the letter that goes out to all parents of first-year students in our welcome packet.
After making your gift to the Parent Fund, help us spread the Parent Fund message by encouraging other parents to join you in supporting your children's experience.
Become a representative at campus events such as Homecoming and Family Weekend or Summer Orientation. Consider hosting a Summer Sendoff for returning and incoming students or a regional event for parents and alumni.
