Parent Programs

The Parent Program offers a one-stop service for parents of Benedictine students. We respond to parent inquiries and provide information on a variety of issues to facilitate communication between parents and the University.

Parent Association

The Benedictine Parent Association is a University-supported, volunteer led organization established to strengthen the tie between Benedictine and the families of current students by involving parents in campus activities that promote the University and enrich the undergraduate college experience. There is no cost to be a member. All Benedictine parents are automatically members. There are many opportunities for parents to get involved in the Benedictine community.
