History

Established in 1955 as the Dad's Association, UI Parent and Family Connections was created in 1971 to bring about a closer relationship among parents, students and the University. The Association's on-campus office is your connection to University departments and offices that can answer specific questions and respond to concerns.

Coming to college is a big step, regardless of a person's background, and we recognize the investment this requires as a student and as a parent or family member. We also recognize the deep commitment you have to the success of your son or daughter, and this is something to which the University is also committed. Students often face challenges and can become overwhelmed or confused as they encounter periods of self–exploration. We know from experience that parents and family members can often make such obstacles easier to overcome; however, assisting your son or daughter is not always easy and can provide its own unique set of challenges.
