UCR Parents Association

The UCR Parents Association was founded to involve parents and families in the life of the University. The Parents Association serves as a valued resource and offers ways for parents and families to be directly involved on campus. All parents and families of current students are invited to participate.

Three Parents Association meetings take place during the academic year. Parents and families have the opportunity to hear the latest UCR news and talk with campus administrators about issues important to them. These informal meetings also allow parents to network and create their own support system. The Parents Association is also involved with other campus activities such as student recruitment, legislative advocacy, summer orientations, commencement and a variety of other events.

By participating in Parents Association activities, you can earn participation points towards the coveted "Chancellor's Reserved Seating" section at your child's Commencement ceremony. Each volunteer activity is worth one point and meeting attendance is worth half a point per person. To get involved and sign up, view the upcoming Volunteer Opportunities and Meetings and Events.
