Virtual Summit Schedules

Focusing on Engagement and Communication, these half-day summits serve to bring together campus-based professionals who work with parents and families in an effort to explore best practices and advocate for/foster engagement with the family members of college students. All sessions will be live, providing an opportunity to interact with the speakers and fellow attendees. After the live sessions, round-tables will be hosted for participants to discuss the sessions or network with their colleagues. We hope you will join us for one or all of the sessions as we learn together!

Registration is Open!
