As the parent of an Auburn student, you are automatically considered a member of the Parents’ Association—and membership is free!
Working with the Office of Parent and Family Programs, the Auburn University Parents’ Association gives parents and family members the opportunity to network and provide support for other parents and family members, and to actively participate in the life of the University by serving on the AUPA Board of Directors as well as volunteering for various campus events. Participating in the Parents Association is an excellent way to stay connected as a part of the Auburn Family and to support the education of your son or daughter.
Benefits of membership include:
The Auburn University Parents’ Association (AUPA) Board of Directors is a group of parent volunteers who serve as ambassadors for Auburn University among the parents and family members of undergraduate students and provide feedback to the Office of Parent & Family Programs on issues of particular interest to parents. The Board of Directors serves as the administrative body of the Auburn University Parents’ Association and meets three times each year to discuss issues, learn more about University developments affecting students, plan programs and events to involve parents and family in the life of Auburn University.
The Board of Directors is made up of parents of current undergraduate students who are also members of the Auburn University Parents’ Association. Currently, the Board consists of 15 people representing a diverse spectrum of students' degree programs and years. New members of the Board of Directors are selected each year, and all members are appointed to serve a three-year term.
Members of the Board of Directors plan events for Auburn families, send e-newsletters to their geographic region, and are available to answer individual questions from parents and families of Auburn students. In addition, board members attend college fairs, high school scholarship ceremonies, and participate in send-off parties.
