Parents Resources

Parents play an important role in the lives of their children. We want to assist you in getting comfortable with the Quinnipiac community during your student's years here.

Parents Council

Parents Council members serve as ambassadors for the Quinnipiac parent community and advance the University through engagement, career development and philanthropic support.

Quinnipiac Parents Fund

Gifts to the Quinnipiac Parents Fund support high-impact educational and developmental programs that benefit current students. Your philanthropic support helps to ensure that students continue to reach their academic dreams through the quality educational experience that Quinnipiac offers.


Parents Leadership Giving

Quinnipiac University encourages parents to be involved in our community. Parents who make leadership gifts to Quinnipiac can make an immediate impact on the experience of their son or daughter.

Parents Association

From the day your daughter or son enrolls, you are a valued member of our community. As a parent of a Quinnipiac student you are automatically a member of the Quinnipiac Parents Association, connecting you to campus life and planning.
