Parent Association

The purpose of the Pacific Parent Association (PPA) is to help support student success by partnering with and connecting to a variety of campus faculty, staff, and alumni. Each of you is already a member of the PPA by virtue of having a son or daughter enrolled at Pacific. PPA provides parents and family members the opportunity to know more about what students are doing and helps them to find ways in which to be supportive. There are many opportunities to build a stronger relationship with Pacific. In order to join the Pacific Parent Association, email parentassociation@pacific.edu. 

The current Pacific Parent Association can also help answer any questions that parents may have about Pacific. To get any questions answered, simply email parentassociation@pacific.edu.
