Parent Advisory Council

The University of Idaho Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is comprised of parents of current students as well as parents of alumni. The committee’s aim is to foster bonds between parents and the college and to support the goals and mission of the University of Idaho. PAC members are parents who want to actively connect to and be involved with the college. They are also key volunteers for Student Affairs initiatives, as well as The University of Idaho Foundation, Inc. PAC members receive special updates and are invited to share their feedback on various topics.

One of the PAC’s main goal is to cultivate relationships with parents of freshmen, serving as a resource to answer questions or address concerns they may have. Members also personally invite parents of freshmen to attend Idaho events and join them in giving to back to the university. PAC members can get more involved through a myriad of other ways, including hosting student events at their home, participating in orientations and Vandal Fridays, staffing college fairs, serving as a career contact and more.

The PAC is a way for parents to be involved, meet other Idaho Vandal families, have fun and provide tangible support for the college.  Each year, members are expected to participate in the following:

  • Cultivate relationships with parents of freshmen, using your experience and connections to answer questions and serve as a resource for them.
  • Attend the semiannual Parent Advisory Council meeting on campus during Dad’s and Mom’s Weekend.
  • Encourage parents of freshmen to join the Parent Advisory Council.
  • Attend other University of Idaho events in your region, when possible.
  • Support The University of Idaho Foundation, Inc. by giving each year.
