Parents Council members

The Parents Council is a group of parents who volunteer to serve as ambassadors for Rensselaer. Members of the Parents Council represent a diverse spectrum of student geographical areas, degree programs, and class years. The group meets at least once a semester, and provides thoughts, comments, and feedback from the general parent constituency to the Office of the First-Year Experience and Student Experience. Many current initiatives such as shuttles to the airport, train and bus stations during major breaks as well as the Parent Discount Card Program have been discussed and implemented with the Council's assistance. Members of the Parent Council are appointed by the AVP and Assistant Dean of the Office of the Student Experience, in consultation with the Parents of Rensselaer. All members appointed are eligible to sit on the Parent Council for the duration of their time in the Parents of Rensselaer association.

To share your feedback and questions with the council, or for more information, please contact us.
