Parents & Family Association
Welcome! As a parent of a University of Akron student, you are automatically a member of the Parents & Family Association.
We are dedicated to student success by engaging parents and family members as active partners in supporting student success at UA. It is our goal to provide you with information and resources that will help you stay informed about what is going on at UA, learn more about yourself and your student, and connect with other UA parents and families.
This is an exciting time to have a son or daughter at UA, largely because of:.
- outstanding faculty,
- the 300 academic programs that we offer and
- over 250 recognized student organizations.
We are committed to making the transition to college easy for you and your student. We have a number of services available to help students adjust to college life and succeed academically.
We hope that you, as well as your son or daughter, will enjoy being members of the Akron family.
