The Ferris Parents Committee team consists of individuals across the Student Affairs division who have collaborated to develop programming and support for the parents and guardians of our students. Their team has created new initiatives that enable parents to better understand the University experience and how to support their students. The new initiatives include a "parents table" during orientation that gathers information and provides information, printed emergency cards, a yearly calendar, a dedicated parents' website that's easily accessible from the Ferris homepage, and the establishment of an email address for parents to submit their questions and concerns. In addition, the Ferris Parents Committee team hosted their inaugural family and friends weekend that was highly popular and exceeded their anticipated 150 person guest count to over 1,300 people in attendance. These low-cost but high-impact enhancements will continue to serve an audience that is extremely important to the future growth of Ferris State University.
