At North Carolina State University, we sincerely believe that family involvement is essential to the success of our students. Equally as important to NC State, promotion and culture of service within the Wolfpack community. Students are provided with multiple opportunities to give back within their communities and it is the goal of Parents & Families Services to provide this same opportunity for parents and families.
The Parent Volunteer Network is one of our two volunteer programs designed to give interested parents a meaningful and enjoyable way to become more active in the University community. By participating in the Parent Volunteer Network and/or the Pack Family Regions program, you become more connected to North Carolina State University, meet other parents and most importantly; serve as a positive role model for your student(s). Such volunteer opportunities range from a one-time commitment to several great opportunities throughout the year, offering various, flexible options to ensure we have something for everyone who wants to be involved.
Planting projects and parent Panels; sharing your wonderful experience and congratulating parents of new State students; and serving as a volunteer at our Parents & Families and Spring Fling weekends, are all wonderful ways to get involved with the Parent Volunteer Program. To provide for parents a wide variety of service opportunity, the Office of Parents & Families Services partners with many programs and departments around campus. Here are some of the departments and programs working to offer parents ways to bring parents on campus and spend some time giving back to the NC State community:
- Parents & Families Services
- Alumni Association
- Arts NC State
- Career Development Center
- Friends of the Library
- International Scholar and Student Services
- Multicultural Student Affairs
- Student Success Fund
- Women’s Center
