The Parents Council consists of parents and families who pledge to participate in Longwood activities for the good of the university and to contribute financially to fund Council activities aimed at student academic achievement, citizen leadership, and overall university enhancement.
The Council provides grant opportunities for students, student groups, faculty, and staff through an annual monetary gift. These financial gifts are payable to the Longwood Parents Council fund and are controlled by the Council. Since its inception in 2009, the Longwood Parents Council has contributed over $86,000 to the community through the grants process.
In addition to the grants process, the Council meets three times per year in January, April and September. They organize summer send offs for new students and families, assist with checking in families for Family Weekend, enjoy an annual winter reception with Longwood administrators and participate in summer Orientation and Registration.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Parents Council or for additional information, please contact Caroline Gibbs, Student Success Program Coordinator.
Longwood University is a proud member of AHEPPP, the Association of Higher Education Parent and Family Program Professionals.
