HPU Families


Dear High Point University Families,

Our top institutional priority is your student as we promote academic success and personal growth beginning with the welcoming of the incoming class at Opening Convocation and culminating with the celebration of degree completion at Commencement exercises. In the Office of Family Engagement, 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.

As your family continues your journey at High Point University, we encourage you to be an advocate for the University in your community by helping the Office of Undergraduate Admissions identify future HPU students or by volunteering your time for recruiting efforts.

Because of their breadth of professional experience, personal connections and desire to support the extraordinary student experience at High Point University, families have been instrumental in our continued institutional growth and transformation. The programs offered by our office have facilitated successful partnerships with parents and grandparents of current students and alumni to provide networking and professional opportunities for our students and philanthropic support to the University.

For those families who may be willing to FIND, FORM, or FUND an internship experience for our students, please contact McKennon Shea at mckennon@highpoint.edu.

Aditionally, 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 that this institution is preparing each of our students for a life of success and significance. Gifts at all levels enable the University to 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 the Parents Council or 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,

Erica N. Burroughs
Assistant Vice President for Family Engagement and Annual Giving
