  • Resources

Welcome, Parents!

We are honored by your trust to educate and develop the young woman in your family. As part of our family, just like you, we are dedicated to her success in and out of the classroom.

Our Parent & Family Program, coordinated through the department of New Student & Family Programs, was created in 2015 to help you stay connected to campus life and to serve as a resource throughout your student's college experience.

We have resources to help you with everything connected with your student's life here at Alverno from navigating financial aid to career and professional development.

A Changing Role

"Be available and supportive, and advise your student to utilze the resources available to them. Allow them to problem-solve and make their own decisions. It's hard, but it's time to switch from being your student's manager to their consultant."
