Parents in the College Selection Process: Allies or Adversaries?

SAVE THE DATE: April 22 – 24, 2017

Some parents see the college search as the first act of adulthood, while others see it as the final act of childhood. Join us this spring for a symposium on the changing role of parents in the college search process. Nationally recognized presenters will lead us as we explore common questions around best practices for working with parents: how to educate parents about the balance of prestige, affordability, and fit; how to support students when parent behavior becomes a challenge; and how to prepare students and parents for the coming change in their relationship.
