Parent Programs

Welcome to our Parent Programs website! As a parent of an EWU student, you are now part of our Eastern family. 

Mission Statement 

Eastern Washington University's Parent Programs provide a channel of communication between the University and parents of current students in order to encourage student success while also maintaining an active relationship between parents and our community. 

What are EWU Parent Programs?

EWU Parent Programs provide communication to parents so that parents are more involved in the EWU community and are more connected to their students, which can ultimately increase student success. The following forms of communication are currently offered through EWU Parent Programs:

Quarterly Newsletter

The quarterly newsletter provides parents with information on upcoming events, important dates and deadlines, and useful information in regards to helping your student(s) succeed. Subscribe to the quarterly newsletter and read past newsletters here.

Parent Programs Website

The University Parent Programs website lists updated information that is easy to access. Visit our website for more information about on-campus events, tips, and fun facts.

Parent and Family Events

The purpose of parent events is to assist parents in understanding their student's experience so that they can better support their student(s). Parent events are held throughout the entire academic. Events may include keynote speakers, faculty and student panels, receptions, and other useful activities that can educate parents on the college experience. Regardless of the type, all events include activities that create collaboration between parents and their students, parents and other parents, or both.
