Apply Now for the Ohio Parent Advisory Council
Jul 18, 2009
By: Chad Barnhardt
The Division of Student Affairs has designed a new program to enrich the programs and services offered to students and gather the valuable feedback of parents, guardians, and family members of Ohio University students.
Parents of Ohio University undergraduate students are encouraged to apply to serve as a member of the Ohio Parents Advisory Council (OPAC). OPAC will assist the Division of Student Affairs with strategic planning, provide feedback about programs, policies, and services, and give parents the opportunity to play a meaningful role in shaping the undergraduate experience at Ohio University.
Two parent representatives from each class year (2013, 2012, etc.) will comprise OPAC, along with four at-large representatives (a parent couple count as one representative). Any parent who has a student enrolled as an undergraduate can apply. members of OPAC will be asked to attend bi-annual on-campus meetings - the first during Parents' Weekend in the fall and the second during spring quarter. OPAC members will also take part in regular "e-communication" with other parents on the council and the Ohio University staff. Lastly, council members will have opportunities to act as Ohio University ambassadors as needed throughout the year. Theses are one-year appointments with the opportunity to continue service.
