What is the Parent and Family Association?

The Alma College Parent and Family Association is a group of parents of current students who volunteer their time to support the college. The Alma College Parent and Family Association is here to provide parents and families with the resources needed to support their student throughout their Alma College experience.

The Parent and Family Association works on behalf of the college and its students to make the experiences of Alma students and their families as rewarding and fulfilling as possible. Any interested parents and family members are eligible to serve on one of the standing committees.

  • Admissions and Recruitment Committee
  • Family Day Committee
  • Move-in Day Committee
  • Parent and Family Support Committee
  • Service and Experiential Learning Committee

A board with a minimum of three representatives from each college class, which aims to be a representation of the current student population, provides leadership for the association.
