Parent and Family Affinity Groups

How the University of Alabama brings Black families together to share resources and community

December 6, 2022

Key Insights

Parents and families offer students critical support during transition times in their college lives. But colleges fail to fully include parents in their student’s experience once students are enrolled in school. Typically, parents and families attend an orientation session and a campus visit during parent and family weekend and receive semi-regular updates via newsletter. These brief interactions and reactive resources fail to provide an ongoing sense of community for parents and often require them to seek out information on available resources to aid their student.
