HPU Families


Dear High Point University Families,

Your student's success is our top institutional priority as we promote academic rigor and personal growth from the first visit to campus all the way through the final celebrations during our Commencement exercises. Through our Family Engagement program, we collaborate with families who wish to be actively engaged in providing an enriched experience for students at High Point University through the investment of their time and resources.

At HPU, our parent community has an outsized, impactful role to play in our continued transformation. It is not uncommon to see parents speaking to classes, conducting informational interviews with students around their career field or investing in one of our philanthropic programs. In many ways, the story of HPU's success is a story of parent and family partnership, engagment and support.

One important way families choose to partner with us is to be an advocate for the University in your community with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by recommending students or volunteering your time for recruiting efforts.

Another important role you may play is to connect with our Office of Career and Professional Development to advise students or share internship and career opportunities through your network. Many of the most successful internship opportunities and career outcomes for our graduates began with a connection through our parent community. 

Additionally, we ask that each HPU Family consider making a meaningful annual gift to the HPU Fund for Extraordinary Education*.  By giving, you are sending a powerful message that HPU Families believe this institution is preparing each of our students for a life of success and significance. Gifts at all levels enable the University to futher its transformation and continue providing the more than $75 million dollars in scholarship support for students who may not otherwise be able to experience the innovative academic environment and values-based learning opportunities that a High Point University education offers.

A number of engagement and philanthropic opportunities are available to those families who choose to join through the President’s Leadership Cabinet.

We are grateful that you and your student are a part of the High Point University Family. Thank you for all you do to support and advocate for the University.

With Gratitude,

Rev. Dr. McKennon Shea
Vice President for Development
