Longwood Parents Council
The Parents Council consists of parents and families who pledge to participate in Longwood activites for the good of the university and to contribute financially to fund Council activities aimed at student academic achievement, citizen leadership, and overall university enhancement.
The Council provides grant opportunities for students, student groups, faculty, and staff through an annual monetary gift of $500. These financial gifts are payable to the Longwood Parents Council fund and are controlled by the Council. Since its inception in 2009, the Longwood Parents Council has contributed nearly $27,000 to the community through the grants process. A full listing of the grants funded by the Council can be found online at http://www.longwood.edu/parents/parentscouncil.htm.
In addition to the grants process, the Council meets three times per year in January, April, and September. They organize summer send offs for new students and families, assist with checking in families for Family Weekend, and participate in the annual Parents Meeting which occurs that same weekend.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Parents Council or for additional information, please contact the Office of First Year Experience & Family Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Longwood University is a proud member of AHEPPP, the Association of Higher Education Parent and Family Program Professionals.
