Parents Council supports student success at and beyond UNH

Family Weekend info table

The weather was perfect. Spirits were high. During Family Weekend Sept. 27-28, we had our Parents Council table set up at the Hamel Rec Center, which gave us a chance to greet visiting families and distribute flyers about who we are and what we do. We talked about the Student Enrichment grants we award to student groups and individual students. We also offered coffee and doughnuts along with UNH pens and our ever-so-popular “UNH DAD” and “UNH MOM” pins.

The UNH Parents Council exists to forge connections and advance initiatives in support of student success on campus and after graduation to help keep the University of New Hampshire strong and growing. We do this through participating in events like Family Weekend, creating and managing the UNH Parents Facebook Group and even writing this email column.

So now you are probably wondering, where do I sign up? Our application form is available here. Parents interested in joining Parents Council for the 2020-21 school year are also welcome to attend our annual holiday event, which will be held near campus on Saturday, Dec. 7. If you are interested joining us or just want to learn more, please email
