Parent Program Advisory Council
The Parent Program Advisory Council is a group of 24 parents, two students and a member of the Cal Poly faculty member who provide programming direction to Parent Program staff and advise the University's administration on matters involving student development and success.
Parent Advisory Council members are University ambassadors, sharing their experiences and perspectives with others and fostering communication between and among parents and the University. Parent members serve a three-year term. Students and members of the faculty serve one-year terms.
Meetings are held three times annually on the Cal Poly campus and are open to all Cal Poly parents and supporters. Parents interested in membership are invited to observe a meeting. The application processes consists of a brief questionnaire and a telephone interview with the Vice President for Student Affairs, the Parent Advisory Council Chair or Vice Chair, and Parent Program staff.
To assist us in planning for your attendance at an upcoming meeting, please request an invitation from Parent Program staff.
