The AU Parent & Family Association began in 1992, making it one of the oldest college parent associations in the country. The AUPFA’s mission is to partner with Auburn University parents and families to engage, inform, and support them to assist their students’ overall success.
Leading the AU Parent & Family Association is a Board of Directors who are parent and family members of current undergraduate students. The Board provides feedback to university departments on issues of particular interest to parents. Members of the board plan events for Auburn families, compose newsletters for their geographic region, and are available to answer individual questions from parents and families of Auburn students.
The mission of the Board is to provide both members and Auburn University with programs and services that address family and campus needs.
Specific objectives for the AU Parent & Family Association are:
- To have an ongoing dialogue with parents about Auburn’s programs, services, and facilities (Inform).
- To provide a network in which parents can seek help and advice (Support).
- To facilitate and involve parents in campus activities, both on and off, to develop community (Engage).
Board members serve a three (3) year term starting on January 1. There are a minimum of three (3) meetings on campus annually. Board members are expected to attend, and accommodations are the board member’s responsibility.
