HPU Families

Parents Council 2021-2022 Chairs:

Ken and Stephanie Casper (Emily '19, Molly '21)

Parents Council Committees are volunteer-based
groups that are open to all HPU families.

The Outreach Committee helps each August with new student move-in, as well as, HPU Connects events, and spring Accepted Student Receptions in conjunction with the Office of Admissions across the country. Members may be asked to share social media messages from the University by being an advocate for HPU on social media in promoting University events, Panther pride and initiatives of the University to various personal networks. Follow, share, like and comment. This committee is open to all families.

The Service Committee helps oversee the service project hosted during Family Weekend, and advocates for regional projects hosted by the HPU family. This committee is open to all families.

The Admissions Advocate Committee greets admitted students and incoming families for scholarship weekends, attend spring Admissions events, and connects prospective students to the appropriate Admissions counselor. You may be asked to offer support to incoming HPU families by sharing your student’s HPU experiences through the Parent-to-Parent calling program in your respective area. This committee is open to all families.

The Career Connector Committee provides the bridge from HPU to the real world by creating internship and job shadowing opportunities, host sites for HPU in the City, as well as assistance with career fairs. This committee is open to all families.
