About Us

Parents Association members, January 2015

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.
