Get Involved


There are lots of great ways to get involved with Parent & Family Programs at Boston University. We want you to become involved, to be an active member of the BU community.

Please consider joining the Parent & Family Advisory Board (PFAB). The Board represents the parent constituency, to further the engagement of parents, to better support them, and ultimately, to help parents guide their students to having the best possible BU experience. The Advisory Board meets twice a year-in the fall prior to Family and Friends Weekend and in the spring, prior to the end of the semester.

You might also consider becoming a Parent & Family Volunteer. There will be opportunities to support students on Alternative Service Breaks (ASB) by providing home cooked meals, gift cards, even places to stay as students provide community service throughout the country. These ambassadors are also asked to volunteer at Summer Orientation Sessions, and to support BU athletic teams.

Members of PFAB as well as ambassadors also volunteer to host Summer Send-off events to welcome incoming BU students and their parents, guardians, and family members to the BU community prior to the beginning of the school year.
