UW's Parent Program Unveils New Name and Program Enhancements
April 3, 2009 — Formerly known as the Associated Parents of the University of Wyoming (APUW), Cowboy Parents boasts a new name and upgrades including an enhanced Web site, a new look and more ways for parent and family involvement.
Cowboy Parents is a way for UW parents and families to get involved in the UW community. It offers opportunities for parents and families to volunteer, learn more about the institution and meet with key UW administrators. The program allows UW parents and families to have a voice at the university and to partner with the institution to help their children achieve their goals.
"Its programs and activities are designed to assist parents and families in the important roles they play in their students' academic success," says Janicca Lee, the program's coordinator.
Cowboy Parents sponsors programs such as the Student Emergency Fund, a source of financial assistance for students in emergency situations, a toll-free parents' hotline, free publications to keep parents and families abreast of important information about UW, Family Weekend and more.
