About

For Parents & Families

Parents and families are highly valued members of the UChicago community. They have important roles in the success of the College and help ensure students make the most of their College experience. Whether supporting students on campus during Family Weekend, volunteering time or student internships, or financially supporting College programming, parents and families contribute to College students’ intellectual development and academic achievement.
