Involvement Opportunities

At Penn State, we believe that student success is enhanced when parents and families engage as partners. Many parents and families want to continue to be involved in their students' education. And students benefit from appropriately involved families. The most important way for you to be involved is to become a well-informed support system for your student. Penn State has established ways for you to get involved.
