Parent and Family Programs provides support, resources and exciting programming for the proud parents, family members and supporters of Cal Poly students. The program is designed to enhance student success and increase parent engagement. Additionally, the program offers a robust communication platform, increases parents’ and supporters’ awareness of University resources, and helps parents develop strategies to meet the unique challenges of parenting students throughout the college years.
Staff can be reached via email and the program’s helpline. Parent and supporter information and resources are provided on the Parent and Family Programs website, social media, and through regular email communications.
Parent and Family Programs hosts welcome receptions for families throughout the year, including orientation and move-in events. The program oversees the Parent Advisory Council and the Cal Poly Proud Parent Volunteer Corps, and hosts the annual Mustang Family Weekend.
