Join the Parents Council


The High Point University Parents Council is open to all parents who are interested in supporting High Point University’s mission to deliver educational experiences that enlighten, challenge and prepare students to lead lives of significance in complex global communities through a variety of volunteer opportunities that assist in enhancing the student and parent experience. The Parents Council meets twice each academic year during Family Weekend and may conduct committee meetings remotely throughout the academic year.

  • Participate on the HPU Parent Facebook and other social media pages with comments, suggestions, answer inquiries from other parents and share interesting posts to help spread the word about HPU’s academic programs, student experiences and the HPU community

  • Participate as a member of one Parents Council Committee: Parents Council Chair, Student Experience, Student Recruitment, Career Services, and Resource Development
