The Dean of Students Office recognizes that parents are important partners in helping to supporting students on campus. Students are faced with a lot of choices and responsibilities once they are at college. Research shows that conversations parents have with their students do have an impact on their students while they are at college. We would encourage all parents to have conversation with students on difficult topics like alcohol and drugs, sexual violence and mental health prior to their transition to campus and throughout their time earning their degree. We understand that these topics can be challenging to bring up, and have created a parent resource “Talking with Your Student about College Culture” to assist parents in these conversation. Please reach out to our office if you have further questions about campus policies, procedures, or resources.
