Parent & Family Programs


Welcome Parents and Family Members!

As a proud WKU alumna, I want to welcome you to the Hilltopper family!  Here at WKU, we value parents and family members as essential partners in supporting student success.  We recognize the vital role parents and family members play in their students' college experience--from helping them research and apply to higher education institutions, to assisting them in their college transition; from encouraging their high school extracurricular involvement, to guiding their major selection and career development.

We know selecting Western Kentucky University as your student's institution of Higher Education was a family decision, and that the decision to send your student to WKU has impacted your family's priorities, finances, and structure.  We want you to know that your family's decision is our family's commitment.  We--you, me, and the thousands of other WKU faculty, staff, and administrators--are equally committed to supporting your student's success.

I hope you will consider Parent and Family Programs your number one WKU resource, your hub for information, referrals, and support.  Learn more about how Parent and Family Programs can serve you; explore this website, familiarize yourself with its pages.  We look forward to serving you and your students.

From our family to yours, welcome to WKU!
