Parent & Family Engagement

The Office of Parent & Family Engagement is happy to welcome you and your student to USF!

We are thrilled your student has selected the University of South Florida for their college experience. Your family will find that USF is a special place filled with faculty and staff ready to help, coach, and support your student. 

While your student has been attending college, transferring institutions will signal a time of transition for you, your family, and your student once again. All of your feelings are normal, and the Office of Parent and Family Engagement is here to help you navigate the transition that you and your family are going through. We will assist, guide, and walk alongside you during your journey as a USF family member.

The Office of Parent and Family Engagement provides families the opportunity to:

  • Stay informed by subscribing to the Parent & Family BULLetin, an e-newsletter full of important dates, educational articles, and campus news.

  • Experience life at USF by attending events like Family and Friends Weekend.

  • Receive Family Coaching for individualized strategies to empower your student to overcome an obstacle or challenge

  • Follow updates by USF Parent & Family Engagement on our Facebook page.


Because of the geographic distribution of our campuses, USF supports our new students and family members from three offices.
