Parent & Family Relations

Group of students posing with Wildcat Willie during Family Weekend


For more than 20 years, JWU Parent & Family Relations has been a resource to Wildcat families. We help you support your student’s success by providing access to information and assistance, offering community-building events like Homecoming & Family Weekend, and sponsoring family volunteer opportunities.

We are proud to work with the JWU Parent & Family Advisory Board (PFAB), a group of Wildcat family volunteers who assist with making the transition to college life easier for parents and students alike. You may see PFAB members during Wildcat Welcome opening weekend and again at Homecoming & Family Weekend. Explore ways that you can get involved.

Parents and family members remain the most influential force in a student’s life. Therefore, your student will likely turn to you for support when he or she is concerned, confused or unhappy. We hope you will join us in supporting your student’s growth and development of valuable lifelong skills by encouraging them to independently and proactively seek solutions to challenges. There are resources available on campus, and we can give you information if you need help directing your student. 

Again, Parent & Family Relations is here to help you throughout your student’s JWU experience. We invite you to call or email with any questions or concerns you may have, and we look forward to working with you!
