What is Parents’ Council?

The UCLA Parents’ Council is the governing body of the UCLA Parent & Family Association and comprises dedicated parent volunteers who serve as ambassadors for the University. Council members engage with parents to foster connections and build partnerships with the University, assist with outreach to current and prospective families, participate in broadening and deepening relationships in support of the University, and represent the parent perspective on the UCLA experience.

Our Mission

The mission of the UCLA Parents’ Council is to engage Bruin parents and families in activities that promote the University and enrich their students’ undergraduate experience, to provide families with a formal link to the University, to make the UCLA experience a positive one for families, and to support affinity‐building initiatives for the University.
