Resources for Parents
It is important for parents to understand that many of the basic expectations and norms of this university community are significantly different from high school. Your student is starting the part of their life where they will discover who they are and what they are capable of, and they will do this as an adult contributing to our community. Please understand that we treat students as adults able to make decisions affecting their lives. As you shift your role from that of caretaker to mentor and coach, we hope that you will challenge and support your student to recognize and develop the skills they will need to be successful in this environment and beyond. The resources on these pages are designed to help.
