Welcome Vanderbilt parents and families!

The Parents and Family Programs office provides a link for Vanderbilt parents to the University. As parents, you play an integral role in the Vanderbilt family, and we look forward to sharing in your student’s experience at Vanderbilt! We understand this is a unique time of growth and our primary goal is to serve and support you along the way.

Please explore our website to learn more about our programs, as well as discover opportunities you have to engage in your student’s life and lend support to and gain support from fellow parents. We hope that you will take full advantage of the services and resources we provide–we are here for you!
