Lander mom and dadLander University Family Connections strives to create an inclusive network between the University and family members of current, incoming, and prospective students.

Goals of Lander University Family Connections include:

  • Creating strong partnerships and open personal lines of communication between families, students, and LU;
  • Assisting families through the college transition by providing support and information;
  • Encouraging parents to become involved members of the University community; and

Lander University Family Connections will help to foster strong, meaningful partnerships with family members of LU students, which will positively impact retention, student success, and engagement throughout one’s enrollment at Lander University.
