Parent and Family Programs
The University of Oregon Parent and Family Programs offers programming and support for the parents and families of undergraduate students. We believe that parent and family members serve as valuable partners in student success. Involved and informed parents and family members are able to be a resource for their students, as well as the larger university community. Our program works to support Duck Families by sharing resources, coordinating events, and facilitating the UO Parent and Family Association.
The University of Oregon Parent and Family Association (PFA) is a group of Duck Families who have made the choice to be active and engaged with their student's university. It was established in 2005 to enhance programs and services provided to parents and family members of UO Students. Families can join the PFA for a one-time membership fee of $70 that, which allows the PFA to provide increased communications, support, and events for members. The one-time fee is waived for families who are Pell Grant eligible.
