Cowboy Parents Council

The Cowboy Parents Council is our core group of parents/families that steer the organization and serve as our official Cowboy Parents representatives at UW functions and events. This group serves as volunteers with Parent Orientation in June, Family Weekend in the fall, and assists with outreach activities and other parent-to-parent interactions. The board meets three times a year. During Family Weekend (Fall), New Parent Orientation (Summer), and the Principal Counselor Student Conference (Spring). Terms are two years with the option to renew. Find out more about the mission of Cowboy Parents and Student Affairs and guidelines by reading the Cowboy Parents Council Handbook.
