UC Parent & Family Programs

Welcome to the Bearcat Family!

Parent & Family Programs provides families with information about student services and resources, campus engagement opportunities, and a dedicated place to receive support in helping their students successfully navigate the UC experience.

We are excited to partner with you to ensure your student's success. As a UC family, YOU are an essential part of your student's experience. We encourage you to become an engaged and informed resource for your student. 

Our office is here to help! Please feel free to reach out to us anytime. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you around campus!

Connect with your student

When your student goes off to college, it can be an adjustment for the whole family. You may not see each other as often, and your communication style may shift. While you will most likely text or talk with your student throughout the week, small gestures to remind your Bearcat that you are thinking about them can go a long way in helping to make their new "home-away-from-home" feel more comfortable.

Gifts to the UC Parents Fund go directly to family and student programming and activities that are not covered by tuition and fees. You can specify a one-time donation or a recurring annual contribution. If you have any questions, please contact the UC Foundation at 513-556-6781.
