Welcome from the Parents and Family Association Advisory Board Co-Chairs:

On behalf of the Parents and Family Association Advisory Board, it is our pleasure to greet you as members of the Vanderbilt family!  At Vanderbilt, your child will mix with students from all over the world, on a campus that unites ten outstanding schools and colleges, in a city that is vibrant and growing. They will immerse themselves in their studies, school activities and social interactions. They will find themselves in a campus community that will be a catalyst to discover things about themselves and to find new interests. They will be encouraged to build, innovate, explore and care.

As a parent or family member, trust that Vanderbilt’s outstanding faculty, administration and staff will be there to care for your student each day as they create this future. We understand this is a unique time of growth, and the primary goal of the Parents and Family Programs Office is to serve and support you along the way. Please explore this website to learn more about available programs and opportunities to engage in your student’s life and connect with other parents. We hope that you will take full advantage of the services and resources provided. Should you ever have a question or concern, the Parents and Family Programs Office is just a phone call away.
