Parent Engagement

Wofford College has approved a new model for parent engagement which includes two opportunities for greater involvement.

The Wofford College Parents Association was created in 2017. It seeks to foster a sense of community among parents; to facilitate communication between parents and the College; and to enlist parents' participation in various efforts serving the goals of the College. There is no fee or charge for belonging to the Parents Association and membership is automatic for parents of currently enrolled students.

The Parents Leadership Council was established in 2016 and honors Wofford’s most generous parents. It consists of parents who provide annual financial support to the college at a leadership level of $2,500 or more. Members of the Parents Leadership Council are invited to campus twice yearly (fall and spring). During each weekend, the Council not only has the opportunity to visit with their students, but also to learn the latest information about the college from faculty and staff, provide important feedback to administration and enjoy the camaraderie of other Wofford parents. In addition, the Office of Advancement hosts a private reception for Parents Leadership Council members and their students.

For questions about the Parents Association or the Parents Leadership Council, please contact Thom Henson, Director of Parent Engagement at 864-597-4213 or
