About Family Engagement

The Office of Family Engagement works to connect, inform, and support families of UT students throughout your student’s academic career. We also provide services and information to parents and families through the Parents Association.

Family Engagement Learning Outcomes

Engaged families are better able to communicate with and support their students throughout their transition and progression to graduation. As a result of parent/family engagement, students will:

  • Utilize family members as a source of assistance, support, advice, and information
  • Better understand the resources and services available on campus to promote their academic success
  • Be aware of important dates and deadlines to help them succeed academically, as well as outside the classroom

As a result of actively engaging in their student’s UT experience and utilizing Family Engagement resources, parents and families will:

  • Maintain a connection to the institution
  • Identify resources to support students during their transition to UT and throughout their academic career
  • Understand ways to effectively support student learning and promote student success through communications, publications, programs, and events
  • Engage in programming that promotes the opportunity to connect with other families and students
  • Develop an in-depth knowledge of policies and expectations of the UT community to which their students will be held
