Parent Council members of Presbyterian College serve as ambassadors for PC and strengthen connections between PC families and the college.

Parents Council members offer the unique parent perspective on ideas and issues, and they support the college by giving their time and other resources. Parents Council members are selected from the group of Parent Volunteers. Working with PC through the Vice President for Campus Life and Dean of Students Office, Parents Council member duties include:

  • Attend Parents Council meetings (held three times per year). It is recommended you have a schedule that is flexible enough to allow you to come to campus for a least two of the three meetings.
  • Actively participate in Parents Council projects and initiatives.
  • Represent the Parents Council in your community and at College functions.
  • Attend as many PC sponsored functions as possible and invite other PC parents to join you.
  • Support PC by making an annual gift to the PC Fund.
  • Promote Parents Council to other parents.
  • Serve on the Parents Council for at least one year with a maximum membership equal to the length of time your child is a full time student at PC.

  • Help with New Student Orientation.
  • Welcome guests to on-campus receptions and regional receptions.
  • Serve on a panel for an Admissions Open House.
