Who we are


Parent & Family Connections at Purdue University engages family members as partners in their student’s educational journey.  By providing information, resources, tools, and services, we work together with families to empower students to be successful. As the liaison office for Purdue families, we advocate for the needs of parents and families and assist them in finding the appropriate campus resources and services.
