Since its founding in 1910, Bowling Green State University strives to offer a meaningful educational experience. Throughout our two campuses, more than 20,000 students are enrolled in nationally ranked programs, have access to state-of-the-art facilities, and participate in a community of learning, both inside and out of the classroom.

As a parent/guardian of a BGSU student, you are a valued member of the Falcon Family and we invite you to become actively involved in the Parent Advisory Council to ensure continued success for BGSU. Whether you are an alumnus of BGSU or another institution or the parent of a first generation college student, your insight is valuable and will further allow us to help our students create meaningful and productive lives. 

Members of the Council will support students by advising the Vice President for Student Affairs on matters of concern or interest to families, as well as the following priorities:

  • Enrollment and Retention
  • Career Readiness
  • Communication and Outreach
  • Fundraising Opportunities

The Parent Advisory Council consists of parents/guardians of undergraduate students who are in good academic and conduct standing at BGSU. Spouses/partners of selected members may serve as a proxy in their absence at Council meetings. The Parent Advisory Council will convene twice a year, once in the spring and fall semesters. Members are asked to attend both meetings, engage in periodic electronic communication, and provide financial support to the Parent Fund or University fund of their choosing (minimum contribution of $120.00 per year).

We hope you are interested in the opportunity to serve on the Parent Advisory Council. For a description of member expectations and the application form visit www.bgsu.edu/PAC. If you have any questions regarding this invitation, please contact Jodi Webb, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs at jwebb@bgsu.edu or 419-372-2147.

Thank you for your support of the Falcon Family. We look forward to working with you to build a better future for our students.
