About the UNL Parents Association

The UNL Parents Association is served by an Advisory Board of Directors, six members of which constitute the Executive Committee (president, president-elect, secretary, treasurer, and two members-at-large.) Advisory Board members are nominated and elected to represent the interests of UNL and its students from a geographical cross-section of the student body. On behalf of all UNL parents, the Advisory Board members serve as parents advisory committee to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. We welcome your active participation and invite you to join us in supporting our student's endeavors at UNL.

We meet four times a year to share our concerns with University administrators and learn about the University's efforts in such important areas as academic advising and the quality of undergraduate education.
