Parent & Family Programs Mission Statement

To partner with parents and families to foster student success in the classroom and enrich the college experience.

Parent & Family Programs Vision Statement

We seek to educate and inform CSUSB family members of the many learning opportunities available to their students, while exposing them to their own opportunities to become engaged with the Coyote Family.

Parent & Family Programs Goals

  • Facilitate a smooth transition to the CSUSB college experience for students and families
  • Provide information and resources to parents and families in support of student success
  • Foster a sense of Coyote PRIDE (Power, Responsibility, Integrity, Determination, Enthusiasm) among parents and families of CSUSB students
  • Create opportunities for involvement and engagement through parent advocacy, fundraising, volunteering, and campus events

Family Orientation

Family Orientation is designed to give new Coyote family members an opportunity to network with others, to provide information on financial aid and career opportunities for particular majors, and to get a better understanding of how to support your student as they make the transition to college life at CSUSB.

Keep checking this web page for date and time of Family Orientation.
