Parents and Family Association
Families have always been involved at K-State. The K-State Parents and Family Association is a way to formalize the connection between K-State and the families of our students.
The association allows families to join a community while actively engaging with their students' college experience by participating in campus programs and activities specifically geared towards families.
Family members can build or maintain a connection to the university by participating in student recruitment activities throughout Kansas and out of state, as well as raise funds to support scholarships and enhancements to student life at K-State.
The K-State Parents and Family Association is coordinated by an advisory board of volunteer leaders in cooperation with the vice president for student life/dean of students. Members of the volunteer committee meet to direct the work of the organization, establish priorities for the use of funds, and serve as a voice for K-State parents on issues pertinent to student life on our campus.
