Parents Council

Enhancing Your Experience

Parents are encouraged to join the Parents Council, which strengthens ties to the Marist community and helps the College meet its fundraising goals. The Parents Council provides opportunities for parents to participate in a meaningful way in their student's Marist experience. Whether through investments of time or money, or both, parents make a difference.

The Parents Council is a College-wide effort to nurture a strong community of Marist College parents. It is a top priority to see that each parent feels a part of the Marist spirit on campus and in your home state. The Parents Council priorities are enhanced communication, outreach, and fundraising for the Marist Fund Parents Campaign.

Apply to be a member of the Parents Council Advisory Committee.
