2018–2019 Members

Parent Council members are willing to talk to the families of prospective or current students about a wide range of topics. Check out each members' profile below to see their Calvin connections and areas of interest.

What we do

The Calvin Parent Council is a representative group of Calvin parents who meet on campus twice annually, foster constructive dialogue between the university and parents, serve as ambassadors for the university, and faithfully support Calvin's mission.

The Parent Council, an initiative of Calvin’s parent relations program, serves as a key leadership board to engage Calvin parents in constructive dialogue and activity.

Parent Council members are asked to serve an initial term of two years, with the option of serving additional years as long as they have a student at Calvin. Parents may serve individually or are invited to serve jointly on the council with a spouse. The membership includes parents or stepparents of students from each graduating class, and it is intended that the membership of the Parent Council reflect the demographics of the Calvin student body.

Parent Council meetings are held on campus in conjunction with two parent/family events: Homecoming & Family Weekend (October) and Siblings Weekend (February).
