THE PARENTS COUNCIL

pc-meetingInvestors in the High Point University Parents Council play a dynamic role in HPU’s success through their annual support of the HPU Fund for Extraordinary Education and gifts of their time and talents.

The Parents Council is open to all parents and families who are interested in supporting the University’s mission of delivering educational experiences that enlighten, challenge and prepare students to lead lives of significance in complex global communities. During HPU’s Fall and Winter Family Weekends, investors gather for official Council business meetings, an University Update with the President, social activities and the Council-sponsored service-outreach project which is open for all families and their students to participate.

Throughout the year, Parents Council investors support the University by:

  • Making an annual leadership gift of $1,924 – $9,999 to the HPU Fund for Extraordinary Education to provide scholarship assistance to High Point’s extraordinary students;
  • Supporting one or more of the Parents Council Committees.
