Parent Council

EMU parent council assists parents, guardians and the university in making EMU an enriching experience for you and your student. Parent Council members meet three times a year, once in the fall and twice in spring.

  • provide opportunities for parents and guardians to counsel and advise the university on academic, social, religious and financial issues
  • create a support group for parents and guardians
  • cultivate communication between parents/guardians and faculty and administration

Parent council members welcome hearing from other parents and guardians. Please let us know if we can be of assistance.
