Get involved

The Parents Leadership Council is a group of highly engaged parents who are eager to be involved on campus and make a direct impact on undergraduate student life. A primary focus of the Parents Leadership Council is to support the Parents and Families Grants Program. Through their financial commitment of $2500 annually, they are able to administer and award financial assistance where it is most needed, to fund scholarships, support important departments on campus and financially assist registered student organizations. The Parent Leadership Council meets twice a year for a fall and spring weekend. Visit the UGA Parents Leadership Council website for more information and to make your contribution.
