Office of Parent Programs

Supporting Your Student's Success

We share a common goal: helping your student succeed.

We'll give you the information and resources you need to support your student's academic, social, career and leadership goals.

Together we can help your student make the most of his or her time at UMass Lowell by

  • keeping you informed about campus news and activities
  • hosting events throughout the year where you will meet other parents, interact with key faculty and administrators and get to know the campus and the city
  • taking your suggestions on ways to improve our support and services to both you and your student
  • helping you take advantage of all that UMass Lowell and the city of Lowell have to offer

From the time you first step on campus until the time we see you at commencement - and beyond - the Office of Parent Programs is here to serve and support you and your student.
