Parents and Family Program

Parents and Families,

K-State is committed to keeping students and families informed about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on campus. For up to date information refer to K-State’s COVID-19 webpage.

Parents & Family Program

Through the Parents and Family Program, you can join a community of actively engaged families dedicated to the support and success of their students. Build a connection to the university by participating in campus programs and activities specifically geared towards families.

As a parent or family member of a K-State student, you are automatically a member of the Parents and Family Program. Access an assortment of tools and information to make the most of your Wildcat experience. You and your student have worked hard for this educational opportunity and K-State is dedicated to providing your family with the resources and support that will put your student on the path to success.

The K-State Parents and Family Program 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.
